DNS configuration: resolving a standalone host name
Hi! It's my first post in linuxforums.org, so Hallo! ;)
My lan at home is as follows:
1. quiniserver, 192.168.0.1
2. quinipt, 192.168.0.4
3. Wifi DSL router, dhcpd enabled
4. iPaq, wifi, dhcp
The iPaq uses quiniserver's DNS, and for it to sync with quinipt, the DNS has to answer quinipt's IP when applied for "quinipt" computer name:
quinipt -> 192.168.0.4
AFAIK I cannot change "quinipt" for, for instance, "quinipt.quiniserver" in the iPaq's settings (make me know if you know how to do so!). That would solve my problem 8-(
So the question is, how could I get the DNS to answer 192.168.0.4 when asked for "quinipt"?
Maybe there's a way to use /etc/hosts to resolve the name?
Hope I've explained my problem well enough O8-)
