First of all, thanks for even looking. This isn't so much of a problem as a request for confirmation.
The idea is that this 'intranet' box will be accessible internally as well as externally. The in-house DNS server points the URL to 192.168.0.24, but externally the DNS record is an external IP. As you can see this shortcuts directly to the box if you are in-house - seemingly a standard practice.
However, I had a slight problem with my setup. I have not setup more than one interface before so it was all trial and error. My first attempt worked breifly, till I realized that I could not resolve externally:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth1 inet static
iface eth0 inet static
So I thought, "It has two gateways... maybe it's getting confused." I took out the second gateway (192.168.0.1) and it works! I can resolve externally and internally.
My question: Is this the proper way to have this set up?
