Dynamic DNS HowTo


This isn't easy... I have read over 3 Howto's and they are all a little different... RH9.... Do I have to configure all the clients with something? If so thats not a very efficient way if your network has over 200pcs running linux... you cant have a network admin doing all that isnt there an auto get or auto config?

can DDNS be set up using the Util under the Server Settings menu?

There are no clear DDNS how to out there. Every one I have read said a little bits different. On other hand, I still can not get it to work. Why it so hard compare to Windows DDNS setup? Any help here appreciates...

if you're only on a small, low performance network you can achieve a dynamic network instantly using a nifty little program, dnsmasq:

not suitable for large complex implementations but great for home networks.

Take a look at the thread:

"How to setup Dynamic DNS on RedHat 9" at
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=97222

We have been discussing DDNS and DHCP in some length. The posts include some fairly detailed descriptions and examples.
