I ran bind on a small network simply because I could and therefore I did!

- my read of the man file for resolv.conf would suggest that if you had entries on each machine along the lines of

nameserver your.ISPs.IP.here (numeric)

- And in hosts have

Usual local stuff as is plus

123.456.789.123 first_other_name
123.456.789.124 second_other_name

- adjusting the machine names and IP addresses as appropriate

No guarantees, since this isn't how I've ever done it.

Hi

Okay okay, I am going to have my own DNS server. Just for internal purposes, but it should be fine, since I can, like you said, have it, so why not...

As for the Resolv.conf, my server is the only Linux machine in the house, so the others are out of luck. Of course in Windows I can also edit

C:\windows\systems32\drivers\etc\hosts

but that is not preferred as far as I concern, specially that they travel a lot, and if the IP changes of those sites, I cannot reflect it on their hosts file, etc.

Anyways, I am going to take the DNS server approach. So, to recap, what should I do to best server my need?

DNS caching server, or a full DNS server?

Thanks

Ben

A caching server is the correct form I believe
