First post. Please excuse any naivety. I've searched and searched trying to find the answer to this seeming simple but obviously complex question but the responses I've found are a little beyond this newbies proficiency.
First let me set the scenario:
I have a linux desktop I would like to use as the main network server. My DHCP is assigned via a d-link router used as a gateway to the internet. I want to set up a local DNS server with the intention of adding SAMBA later.
I have the following wrinkles bound to complicate things:
1. I'm using a XP wireless laptop (under my complete control)
2. My wife is using a Laptop configured to her unversity LAN
I'm hoping that by setting up an linux DNS server will be a good first start to to allow her to back up data on the linux box and do wireless printing without F##king with her unviersity LAN settings.
I'm looking for a good resource or tutorial about how to go about setting up a local DNS that allows me to continue to use my router as my DHCP server and gets my wife wireless printer access and backup space in the linux box.
Any quick solutions :wink:
