multiple host names


Hi,

I was wondering how I would go about having multiple hostnames one linux box (debian). I have edited my hosts file on my linux box and added in the relevant addresses. ie: 192.168.10.X proxy.domain.com debian

However on my clients when I point the primary dns server to my linux box and I ping my proxy it doesnt work.

Is this even at all possible ?

thanks

You need to add all those hostnames to your DNS files

you can CNAME them.
