I am doing the Perfect Setup for Ubuntu 6.06 LTS that can be found on:
I already set the /etc/hosts file, and just filled in something hoping it would all come together later on.
But now, at step 11, I need to set up the mail systems, and for that, I need to be sure of the servername.
The writer of the HOWTO uses, server1.example.com.
Considering the fact that I am the owner of the domain www.monstagames.nl
, I think I can use server.monstagames.nl?
But the server is at my home, and has no other .monstagames.nl devices in its network.
I set up my /etc/hosts file like this:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.1.75 server.monstagames.nl webserver
# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
I hope this looks clear to you, any help is welcome.
Thanks in advance.
