I'm still getting my feet wet with Linux. I am working on turning one of my PCs into a webserver for my own websites and some of my friends. I have successfully got Apache2 and ProFTPd working, however, I would like to know how to setup DNS on the same computer for my network, so I can point an external address to it (richgannon.net is the domain). Oh, and can this be done if I am using a Linksys NAT router?
Once I get that working, how can I create subdomains to different computers on the network and to different users' directories ( i.e. richgannon.net/~user/ is user.richgannon.net)
Thanks in advance!If you love something, emerge it

If apache is listening on all your ip addresses. then I assume you can go like http://yourhostname and see your apache start page. yes?
If so then you just need to sort out the router. basically your static ip address (from your isp) will be fixed at your router. you need to setup port forwarding on it to point all port 80 requests to your linux box. and that should be it. Oh yeah and talk to your isp about them pointing your domain name at your static ip.
