hostname question??


hi

I have a fedora core 2 installed Linux box. I have configured apache web server under the name webserver.rnj.com with the ip 192.168.1.1

I am also configuring mail server in this box. How can I add mail.rnj.com hostname and how do i make the mail server point to this page? If i add a hyperlink(which points to mail.rnj.com) in apache web server page, it should open the mail page or open squirremail.

??????????

Thx in advance.

RnJ

INternally you could just adapt the /etc/hosts file likesuch
192.168.0.1 mysrv.mydomain.com mysrv myothername,mydomain.com myothername

From the outside you need the dns server to have a CNAME entry
