I’m reworking my home network, and playing with a VirtualBox image of Ubuntu 8.04 LTS that is acting as my DNS server and DHCP server. This is an attempt to deal with the frustrations of my Netgear gear not doing what I want re: IP addressing, and to simplify accessing servers and other devices by name on all my various IP-enabled equipment.
I’m still getting to the bottom of all this DNS stuff, but a couple of key links I don’t want to forget are:
- The Perfect Server at howtoforge.com
- DNS server Setup using bind in Ubuntu from Ubuntu Geek
- Make your DHCP server dynamically update your DNS records on Ubuntu Hardy Heron
