I am looking for an RFC, HowTo or man page that answers the questions
herein. If anyone can assist, please respond to the mailing list.
There is a registered domain. Let's call it 'my.tld'.
There are several computers that have 2 or more NICs, one of which faces
the internet ("WAN" hereafter) and the other faces the LAN. A few names
are 'larry', 'moe', 'shep', 'curly', 'stan' and 'ollie'.
There is a boatload of computers that have only 1 NIC and all face the
LAN. A few names are 'may', 'fay', 'ruth', 'mona', 'joe', 'jim', 'john'
All computers have static IP addresses.
All hosts files contain '127.0.0.1 localhost'
What is the LAN name (entry in /etc/hosts) of moe? Why?
What, if any, entry in hosts should moe have for moe.my.tld? Why?
What, if any, entry in hosts should moe have for fay? Why?
What value should be in moe's /etc/resolv.conf for 'search'? Why?
What value should be in moe's /etc/resolv.conf for 'domain'? Why?
In what, if any, way should larry's hosts file differ from moe's? Why?
What value should be in fay's /etc/resolv.conf for 'search'? Why?
What value should be in fay's /etc/resolv.conf for 'domain'? Why?
What, if any, entry/entries in hosts should fay have for moe? Why?
If I've left out anything obvious, please point it out.
