FAQ
I am using a number of DHCP devices on a network. Working fine with
CentOS 5 x86_64.
My question is now how do I tell the DNS (after I get my DHCP address)
about my devices
name and IP address so that others can find me by my machine name?

I thought that was an automatic thing - but it appears not.

Thanks,

Jerry

    I wrote this years ago, so it might need updating, but the basics should
    still be the same.

    What you want is called "Dynamic DNS" (or DDNS for short), and it needs to be
    active on the DNS server, if it is to work. You cannot make that work only by
    configuring the client.

    It is not automatic by default because in principle it can represent a
    security vulnerability, if not used properly.

    HTH, :-)
