Hello, I have a small network of two boxes and experience some oddities so that I would be glad for some advice.
Box A: FreeBSD, interface isp0 (ISDN card to Internet provider) and interface xlo (Ethernet to Box B) Box B: Windows or FreeBSD or Linux Ethernet interface to Box Box A on isp0 gets some dynamic IP everytime it connects Box A on xl0 should be 192.168.0.1 Box B should be 192.1668.0.2 To allow internet browsing on Box B, I set up natd on Box A, to have packages coming in on Box A via interface isp0 and to sent out on interface xl0 to Box B. To allow file sharing under Windows on Box B, I set up samba on Box A. Where I seem to have problems is DNS. I get nameserver lookups (the name server is at my provider), which result in a phone connection, even if a local name (I mean something I put in /etc/hosts already) is resolved. Perhaps my /etc/hosts is already not correct: 127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.my.domain a-gw a-gw.my.domain 192.168.0.1 a.my.domain a 192.168.0.2 b.my.domain b Any advice or tutorial?
