Question
Authored by: r0adrage on Jul 17, '04 06:04:34PM

I solved that for my home network by running my own DNS server specifically for requests within my house. I set up a zone file for the 10.x.x.x net, and for my domains with all of my hostnames mapped to the correct 10.x address. My DHCP server tells all clients to use my DNS server. So www.brokenvaporware.com maps to 10.0.1.1 (or whatever) for clients inside my network.

This is not the same as my primary and secondary DNS servers. Those still give out my cablemodem address, so people outside can still contact my hosts.

You could use the /etc/resolver/blah trick to have your computer look at your internal DNS server (instead of having the DHCP server give out its address), but you would still need a nameserver running to offer up your lan mappings.
