Hello, I have read lots of threads here but my brain still don't want to help me figure what to do... sorry. So here's the thing: i have a Ubuntu 6.06 LAMP server installed as a databases server for intranet in the office. The IP of the server is 192.168.1.200. On that server I will host several websites - customers, emails, contracts and so on; all of the websites are PHP, using MySQL and they will only be accessible from the intranet. Instead of using the standard techniques to host those things, I decided to elevate myself and installed ISPConfig. Worked like a charm. My problems started when I wanted to access the websites from my intranet: they cannot be accessed without changing the host file on every bloody windows machine, which is too much... I understand that there is a way for those windows users to access the websites on this server without having that hosts file changed, by me running a DNS server on the local Ubuntu machine and stuff. Can some blessed person here tell me how to do this? I'm completely newbie in DNS and such things but I will try hard to achieve some knowledges. So to make the things clearly, here are some parameters: - the server local IP : 192.168.1.200 - the server name: dbserver - the domain I chosed on the installation, in order to access the local windows network: cargo - there are 24 windows workstations out there, waiting for me Thank you very much indeed! Sincerely, Axel.
