Attack of DNS vol 2

June 8, 2006

Since 10.4.6 all services (it seems) require a FQDN to function. With a NAT-d IP this is ofcourse impossible. So to get servermgrd to cool down behind a NAT: * Configure DNS service (just add your local IP, no MX etc) * Enable DNS server * Add server IP to DNS servers * Add NAT router’s IP to DNS servers

Then check

host localip

host name.of.server

sudo changeip -checkhostname
