DNS in a small network
Date: Thu, 16 Jun 2005 15:52:46 -0400
I would like to know how to setup a DHCP-DNS server combination on my small
network having around 25 computers in order to achive the following:
- DHCP to automatically update DNS
- DNS resolve names of local computers on my single class C network:
- Using BIND & ISC DHCP
I do not have a registered domain name, just a workgroup name and I would
like to forward all unresolved names coming from computers on my lan to my
ISP name server.
Is it feasible. I found many examples but they all start by assuming that I
have a registered domain name.
I want a DNS to quickly find a machine by its name on my lan.
Thanks for links, comments or suggestion.
