Let me see if I am following you right on this Ken. I already have my host
name set as "ohmster". I had it set previously to "ohmster.com" but thought
that a host name was a machine name so the host name should be just plaing
"ohmster". When I had it set as ohmster.com, my Windows shares would only
see the machine as ohmster, not ohmster.com. This caused a real problem
because my Windows XP machine was named "ohmster" and my linux machine was
named "ohmster.com". Windows networking saw the names as being the same and
I had all kind of funky networking problems because of this until I just
named my Windows machine "missy".
So how does one set a domain name then in this case? You mean with
httpd.conf? I have already done this. Is there another way to set a domain
name? So to put www.ohmster.com in my hosts file, what IP should I give it
then? My IP address is slightly dynamic, it could possible change, I use an
IP updater from no-ip.com to handle that if it occurs. They provide the
DNS. Currently I have this in my host file:
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost ohmster
Where can I put the www.ohmster.com part? Notice the "scary" warning not to
change the 127.0.0.1. What to do?
Thanks for helping Ken.
