This is nearly identical to what I have at home. I installed Bind on my
server to handle the DNS stuff for the outside interface because I
registered my own domain name.  On the inside I just have a host file on
all my other machines that holds all 6 of my machine names.  Probably not
the best way but it never changes so it works.  So, I can refer to my
server either as or as sphinx (it's name in the host files)
from the inside.  I suppose I could wipe out the host files and add the
other machines to my DNS.  If I did this would I see
simply as sphinx from within my zone? Hmm?
