[SOLVED] Setting up CentOS server. Question: FQDN
I've setup a Guest OS (CentOS 5.3) on my Vista box using VirtualBox.
I have the network interface bridged to my home network so that the Guest OS is being assigned the IP address of 192.168.1.102.
I'm installing a control panel to test (IspCP Omega) and one of the preinstallation conditions is: "Your Server has to be configured to use a resolvable fully qualified domain name."
Does this mean that I need to setup BIND (or some other DNS software)? I'm not that great with understanding DNS as someone else setup my VPS for me.
I read that I can "fool" the OS into thinking that it is an FQDN by adding it to the hosts file.
I'm really not sure what is necessary here. The reason being that I am not planning on opening this up to the www (yet). I'm really only testing it right now and trying to get a basic understanding of it.
Would appreciate it if someone could help me out here.
