Sorry -I haven't explained this very well ...
I have a linux box on a LAN at home. The linux box has an IP of
192.168.1.4 The other machines are Windows 98/95.
I am trying to set up Majordomo on the linux box so that I can use
a dialup connection to the Internet from this box. I have other ISPs
so I can experiment connecting to the linux box over the net from
one of the other machines. I am connecting to the net from the
linux box via an ISP where my email address is
firstname.lastname@example.org - they do not give me a fixed
My problem is - shall I call the linux box acer.home.local or
mozart.freeserve.co.uk ? Which is the better approach for getting
Majordomo to work?
