Hi there,


I have Mandriva 2009.0.


All my computers are connected to the internet by a wireless router.

I have apache, mysql, php, perl, bind, phpmyadmin, webmin and sendmail on my laptop server.

What I want to to do is setup my laptop to be a DNS server with a domain. I want my laptop to be still connected to the internet, but so that only computers in my household to view my laptop. This is fine so far. I can browse to and access my server without anybody else seeing except other computers in my household. How do I setup my laptop to be a DNS server with a domain such as laptopserver.com, and no one else can see it except household computers and still receive the internet?


I have tried several tutorials, and can't seem to get the domain working. A full tutorial would be appreciated.

You could try installing drakwizard and then using this to configure the DNS server. You'll find the wizards once installed, in Configure Your Computer, or press ALT-F2 and type in mcc and run this.
