Ok, I know you're trying to make clear what your problem is, but it's still not. So, let's try step by step,, using a FreeBSD mailserver as the example: 1) Does the mailserver have a fixed HOSTNAME or can the HOSTNAME change if the DHCP server wants it to? 2) When you say "but I have not managed to get the suggested name put in their DNS", does this mean you expect the FreeBSD mailserver to enter itself into the Microsoft DNS? Or can you not get the FreeBSD mailserver to name itself according to what the DHCP server tells them to? -- Mel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
