A question about private LAN addresses (e.g., 192.168.1.x) and DNS
My DNS authority file for my domain lists both external addresses
(i.e., the static ethernet address assigned by my service provider),
and the private LAN addresses for my private network. I do this
because (a) I need to act as primary for my domain and (b) I use the
same DNS server as the nameserver for my private network.
Is there a problem in doing this? By including those private addresses
in my zone file, am I "exporting" them to the internet at large?
If I either shouldn't be including the private addresses in the zone
file, or if I didn't want to, where could I put them? I guess I could
put them in the etc/hosts file, although that seems a little kludgy.
Would it be possible to run two nameservers on the same Linux box, one
for the private LAN and one as primary for my domain?
Thanx in advance for any help!
