Create a transparent local software update server
Authored by: pauldy on Oct 10, '07 11:26:01AM

Might try a simple entry in /etc/hosts to fix the issue with reverse dns. Of course this may have the side effect of pointing the server to itself for updates.

Cheers, yes it helpded. And no it doesn't check on itself, because it has external DNS so it bypasses the hacked DNS.

Actually, it didn't because it checks for DNS reverse record, not in FF (flat files). I might just run a DNS service there as I don't like cluttered logs (needles to say, this log helped us once to determine when the server crashed as the DNS error appears every 30 minutes).
