Re: configuration of a linux router



Douglas,

dt> Now you're using shaw.ca for your home domain. Do you own that? Would
you like to e.g. relay mail for all of shaw.ca?

Not really.

OK, I've invented the domain name petershouse;
the current hosts file follows. Please let me know of any
remaining errors.

Isn't there a place to specify the domain, analogous to /etc/hostname?
Unfortunate that these matters aren't mentioned in the hosts
man page. Also, I wonder that /etc/hostname, /etc/hosts,
/etc/network/interfaces and perhaps a few other files haven't
been amalgated into one. Excessive fragmentation increases
the likelihood of confusion and error.

Thanks, ... Peter E.
