Setup local services
I'm trying to set up some services locally. Also I'd like that some could use these services outside the local network
I have :
A netgear dsl modem/router/firewall/dhcp - 192.168.10.1
A netgear switch - 192.168.10.239
A xserve - 192.168.10.110
Some mac - 192.168.10.x
The idea is setup ichat/ical/opendir locally (not sure if these services required local mail server)
So I setup my xserve like this
dns name : xserv02.mydomain.home
hostname : xserv02
Locally I have two options :
setup a local dns server to resolve xserv02.mydomain.home
setup the /etc/hosts on all mac
If I setup a local dns server, then xserv02 has to foward request to my ISP dns, and do recursive request for localnet/localdomain, then an all mac/gateway I have to set the dns to the xserv. right ?
If I setup /etc/hosts on all macs I don"t have to chnage the dns on the macs/gateway, but in this case does all the xserv services will work ?
Then for some services I'll use the port forwarding to route outside request to the xserv.
As we don"t have yet a fixe IP adress I'll use dyndns.org
Should it work for ical/ichat ?
do I have to setup something special ?
As I have an internet box with my own dns server, I could CNAME the xxxx.dyndns.org to xserv.mydomain.com and set my box dns server to allow these services to work well if need
Is it OK to do this like this ?
The primary goal is to setup services locally, and maybe allow some services from outside (ichat/ical). If this solution isn't Ok I can imagine setup a VPN for outside services
Does ichat/ical server needs the mail to be setup ?
Is it possible to setup a mail server at least locally and then set it up to send/receive mail without a fixe IP ?
Thanks for your help and advises
