OK seems now I am really confused. Apparently I do not have my network (card) set up right. When I configure my network card. There are the following items Host: Domain IPv4 Gateway: nameserver: Configuration for interface x10 IPv4 Address Netmask Extra options
What I have is Host Ginger (made up) Domain (blank) IPv4 Gateway blank Name server 192.168.0.1 (router) Config for x10 IPv4 Address 192.168.0.3 (assigned by the router) netmask : 0xffffff00 Extra blank The router has the mac address as 00:03:6d:14:08:df I just want to set up a server accesable by my local network. Where do I go from here. I looked at the rc.conf file and it shows I am running 'named' server. Do I need to configure this. I've got The Complete FreeBSD by Greg Lehey which is helping a great deal, but I have been playing with Unix for about a week and half now. Sorry to say I am a windows guy. Seems like the ServerName you selected is unknown to the DNS system. Maybe the answer to your question is in the comments to the ServerName definition in httpd.conf > # If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here. Otherwise if you prefer to use your "invented" host name, you may try to set up a local DNS server that will resolve it for you. - Kjell _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
