Setting up a server for my New Company
First let me say sorry this might be a bit long.
Ok here we go:
I have started my own IT company Nerd4Hire (In Australia) and I have decided to go create my environment 90% Linux (I have a XP machine to manage my vmware server and for doing my tax etc). To save some money and learn more about Linux.
I come from a Windows world where I could get servers up and running in no time but come to Linux servers I have limited knowledge.
Call this over kill but I would like to setup a DNS, DHCP, LDAP, webserver (to host a small intranet) and a email server in CentOs (Would the kind people suggest I go something like clarkconnect or ebox)
I have been pulling my hair out trying to setup an internal DNS server using BIND and webmin. I followed these steps fond in the attachment and added my ISP's DNS server as the forwarder. Now when I ping my CentOS server from my Ubuntu machine it pings this address: acmkoikkqo.gs02.gridserver.com (188.8.131.52). Is there something I'm doing wrong?
Also for a 389 Directory server (LDAP) is it a requirement for DNS to before setup before hand?
Again sorry about the long post. Trust me there will be more
