    home network dns

    I want to create a development network in my basement, coming from a standard cable modem.
    I know how to configure lamp apache2, nfs and samba, etc.

    But I don't know how to make the network happen.
    Perhaps the lamp box needs to be a DHCP server for all other boxes on the basement subnet.

    Do I need to put two network cards in the linux box (the server) and run it as a router?
    Do I need some sort of locally-authoritative name serving too?

    Anybody know of any home-networking for advanced dummies tutorials? (I've been looking but not finding)

    OK. The following seems to have what I wanted.

    As a REAL simple solution, you could use your hosts file to 'fake' DNS internally (/etc/hosts, c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts or ... im not sure on a mac)

    setting value / domains in this will allow you to point to a server directly.

    Equally, for a single user / single machine potentially internal dns isn't even needed. I don't have it here and do all my dev on a seperate machine

    Easiest thing to do would be to use a router / firewall that also functions as a DNS forwarder. Monowall comes to mind, most soho routers have some sort of capability like that. Unless you really want to learn how to operate DNS . . .
