Ok.. I got a SuSe Server machine that runs my network. Its got a webserver and and a domain name attached to that. Its also got SuSefirewall2 runnin and keeping things all working and safe. Seems to do a decent job.
Now.. here is the problem. I can access the server by using its internal IP.. however, when attempting to do the domain name thing.. which i really need to have when admining my lovely 5 (1 soon to be active) phpBBs being that phpBB2 has a habit of using that blasted domain name..
When I ping the domain name.. it goes to the outside IP.. but it doesnt allow pinging and such it just says "Hey..thats the ip" and ..yea its the right IP.

Any way.. what is the fix on this. I dont know iptables very well (altho..I need to start learning..fast) Is there one quicko fixo that I can use ..other then shutting it off completely. That seems to cause issues of its own..by just shutting it off.. the domain works.. but certain sites dont..which is odd
Any way thanks. I can provide some more info if needed. I have been poking around with iptables attempting to figure this out.. but nothing seems to work.. and.. I dont wanna mess with the long, complicated packet filtering script SuSe Server has without knowing what I am getting myself into.hehe. Thanks again...
On your own machine, open up the hosts file (/etc/hosts on *nix, c:\windows\system32\driver\etc\hosts in windows nt/2k/xp/2k3, c:\windows\hosts in win9x IIRC)
put in the private ip and the domain name, eg
Hey thanks dude. That worked great. I had heared once that that exsisted.. but I never knew where it was. Ha..its amazing how much it looks like the /etc/hosts file in i think RH linux.. I swear it looks familer. Oh well.. hehe. Again, thanks dude. And I dont think Microsoft wants it to really be changed tho.. because it was all readonly like....
