Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

right, finally bought a domain name (thirtythreeandathird.net) and now i need to sort out dns for it. now i'm on cable and have a dynamic IP BUT i don't want to use noip/dynu/dyndns or similar as i'd pay $30 a year extra when my address is only likely to change about 2 or 3 times in a year... doesn't seem like good value. so i'm trying to suss out how to do it without them. i've (hopefully) got named working on my server but then the problem comes back in how to find that name server if the ip changes...? thinking about it i can specify a nameserver by its name and not it's IP yes? in this case would it be a plausible plan to get a freebie dynamic url like i have in the past (e.g. 333.dynu.com) simply to use as a name for finding the nameserver which can then resolve my domain by itself?
I probably also have the option of a static ip nameserver that my friend owns which i could do the same with i guess, or alternatively forward any nice domain requests to the naff free address...
anyone able to give some thoughts on this? mara? finegan? [insertyournamehere]?
also got my addres from 34sp.com and it seems that the only way you can change nameservers with them is to email them personally.. eek.
Acid we don't like you anymore , just kidding. I hope I knew the answer, nope. I am facing the same delemma, my ISP offers static IP read earthlink for an additional $15 a month, the thing is I am on ADSL and my phone company doesn't want to "support" static IP's from this particular ISP read verizon, so I have to wait till my contract expires (Dec 2002) and I'll switch to another ISP which offers static IP's for xDSL accounts ( http://www.speakeasy.net ). I know earthlink and verizon don't make sense for you b/c you are in UK, but still... Is there an alternative ISP that offers static IP's in UK for reasonable price?
Distribution: FreeBSD, OBSD maybe Gentoo and Winblech XP
thirtythreeandathird.dyndns.com is totally free.
For a one time fee to a cool organization (like LQ) You get your very own domain
forever no matter where you move or who your ISP is. Who would you be registering your DNS with otherwise?
I guess you could run your own DNS server which would take however long they do plus 24 - 48 hours for the change to propogate throughout the web. But then if Cable co notices big leap in traffic they may shorten your DHCP leasetime...back to sqaure one.
Now w/ DynDNS (Really I'm not affiliated with them) you could pick up the server carry it to a new location an start it. After the NIC is brought up a script runs to auto update dydns with your new address. then it runs as often as you cron it to. Only a 15-20 minute wait for propgation.
thirtythreeandathird.com domain and no monthly payments for life.
I won't bother you any more about them if your still not convinced. I do think you should look into them more deeply. They aren't like the other Dynamic services...They are there to make the net a better place for folks like us. Not to make a ton of money...
yes thankyuo. i am 1000% utterly aware of dyndns and what tehy do and how much it costs, their name is even in the title of this thread. i have been running a very similar service over teh last year for free and it was good. now i want to ditch it... maybe that's somehow not obvious? thanks for trying though.
