[ProgSoc] domain names in linux
further to the recent discussion on the dns's...
let me forward this hypothetical situation:
if i have a pc with 4gig hd and about 64mb ram (would this be enough for
running the machine as a server?) running linux. i partitition the hd to 4
1gig drives naming it c,d,e,f (i'm not really sure how this works on
linux. i presume it would be similar to win/dos).
i connect it to the net (for example; with uts - therefore having the
domain rup.uts.edu.au?). would i be able to have either:
a) different domain names for the different partitioned drives (ie.
c.com for c:, d.com for d:, etc.) and thus have different users for the
drive (ie. firstname.lastname@example.org different from email@example.com)? i read somewhere that if
they have the same ip resolution (that means the same machine right?)
they'll resolve the same addresses even though they have different names?
so the question leads to - does the different drives have unique ip?
b) if i cannot have domain names for the drives, how about cannon names
for the drives? and the same question applies as to whether firstname.lastname@example.org
would be the same as email@example.com? i think this question is probably
answered in the last one =)
okay, here another question:
i know progsoc doesn't do this (it was said in an email earlier?) but is
it possible to have rup.com resolve to my progsoc dir? this would involve
updating progsoc's or uts's nameserver? does every machine connected (see
above hypothetical q) to the net automatically become/have a nameserver?
okay, very last one:
whenever i telnet (using win95) to ftoomsh i cannot seem to run pine. it
runs ok on the itd and socs machines but not on ftoomsh.
is it a config at ftoomsh or is it my machine and what do i have to do so
that i CAN run pine from ftoomsh.
note: i get the msg "you have to fix up your ANSI configurations" or
i know this is long...
