How do we get our local computers to use our name sever. See Setting up Bind in Ubuntu 9.10?

  • Can we redirect our web browser to use our name server?
    Yes, but we have to understand what our router is doing. Our route is from a local computer, to the Internet and back to a local computer. We are going through our router twice. Both out and in. We have a request out and a request in. Our router won't do that. We need to direct all request from our local computer to first check our name server first. The let the name server send the request to the internet.
  • All request from the Intranet computer see the local router first.
    So we have to modify the local router to send all request to the local name server.
    • Modify our local router.
      Using the web browser, go to the local IP address for your router. My IP address is Login and look for the configuration page to redirect all local computers to a local name server. In my Dlink router this is button called "Manual Internet Connection Options". Go to the section marked "Dynamic IP (DHCP) Internet Connection Type :" and set the "Primary DNS Address" to the local IP of your local name server. Mine is
    • Save the confireation and test:
      All you local computer should now be able to access your local web site. Well we do have one proplem. Now when any computer is on it needs to access your server. So you need both computers turned on and running.
    • Where working on that problem.
      How do we modify the /etc/resolv.conf file to go to our name server instead of the one provided by the sevice provider?
