Ubuntu :: Add A Local Domain Alias ?

Is there anyway we can add a local domain alias so that if we enter [url] in the browser it would point to [url]

In Windows XP I used to do it by editing the "hosts" file from the following directory



How do we do the same thing on Ubuntu 9.04?

Ubuntu Servers :: Set Up An Alias Domain?
I set up a mailserver using this tutorial:[URL].. It works fine so far. I run this server for a small company with about 20 mailboxes where a address looks like that.[URL].. Now I want to set up an alias domain so that [URL].. also automatically is directed into the mailbox of "user".

Software :: Postfix Virtual Alias For Second Domain Not Mapping Correctly?
I moved the catch-all mapping to the bottom of the virtual_alias_maps hash, and I realized my problem description wasn't accurate. All mail is going to user1. The header tells me it's going to user2 or user3, but everything is delivered to user1. postfix 2.5.5 fc8 /etc/postfix/virtual:

Code: user2 user3


my catch-all for [URL]t is working ok. however, everything sent to [URL] is delivered to user2 (local). i am expecting [URL] mail to be delivered to user3 (also local)

Software :: Domain Alias Email And Actual Forwards In Postfix?
I want two alias functionality:

1. when a mail is sent to an account; if it has a forwarder set; it should forward a copy of email to the mentioned email address.

2. all the emails sent to a domain alias should be automatically forwarded to the respective email account in the main domain.

eg for 1. =>
eg for 2. =>

We have a database that stores the mailboxes as we have our own control panel. I can get only one working at a time. I have the mysql query in the .cf file and mentioned it in the as 'virtual_alias_maps' but i need both to work not just one at a time.

Server :: POSTFIX - Virtual Domain And Alias Maps Results In 'unknown User'
I've setup postfix using mysql tables and all works except for sending to an alias. The mysql logs show that postfix is only looking at the mailbox table for where to deliver the mail for the alias. However it is not looking in the virtual alias maps table. There are no complaints from postfix on startup to indicate that there is anything wrong, and if I send to a virtual domain listed as a relay on the server it does look up the virtual alias table... even though the domain is not hosted on the server....

So the question I have is where to look next? The mysql log shows the expected lookups from postfix EXCEPT for the virtual alias map queries.... why would it not be checking the table? Since it is not looking up the virtual alias it bounces the addresses back to sender complaining that the user doesn't exist... It does deliver to a virtal mailbox, however again it never checks the vitual alias table.... so it only delivers since there's a mailbox for it rather than needing an alias...

Ubuntu Servers :: Access Web Site When Site's Domain Name / User's Local Server's Domain Name Are Same
In the office there is a local network with samba+openldap PDC. The local domain name is The company desided to create a corporate Website on a remote hosting and desided that the site's domain should be which is same as local network's domain name. So now it is not possible to reach that corporate website from within the company's local network because, as I guess, bind9 which is installed on above menioned PDC looks for on a local webserver. Is there a possibility to let people from this local network browse the remote site?

Ubuntu :: Windows Domain Not Available Until After Local Login?
I used Likewise (specifically, likewise-open-gui) to add my computer to the Windows domain at work. I can log into the computer with my domain credentials.

Until I reboot.

If the computer ever shuts down fully, I get an authentication failure when I log in using the domain account. But if I log in using a local account and run likewise-open-gui again from there, everything works. I don't have to rejoin the domain, only launch the program, close it, and log out of the local account. This seems to allow me to log into the domain afterward.

Is there something in specific that I can add to my startup scripts that will connect me to the domain before login?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Ping Hostname In .local Domain
ever since upgrading from karmic to lucid, i cannot ping fqdn hosts in .local tlds. nslookup & dig work, but most other utilities fail (ping, traceroute, etc...). i know .local is an invalid tld, but apple seems to have made it a defacto standard on private networks, so i'd imagine somebody else has seen this issue before... is there a simple fix that doesn't require managing hosts file entries on a bunch of systems?

Networking :: Domain Won't Load From Local Network?
Have a domain registered on a public ip. The domain server for the domain is on the same local network as the web server that uses the domain. The web server naturally has a local and public ip address.

The problem is that whenever I try to access the domain from my local network the lookup for the domain fails, as it cannot find the server from the local network. What's the most painless solution to this problem?

TL;DR: need for my domain to be accessible from both my local network and the outside world, now it's only from the outside which is a problem.

Software :: QPopper Not Accepting Mail From Local Domain?
I have QPopper and Sendmail setup on a Red Hat server, they both seem to be running ok and listening on usual pop and smtp ports 25 and 110.

QPopper is running through xinetd and the config file is as follows

service pop3
disable = no
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no


The problem is I get an error in the maillogs when trying to send mail from a PC on our local domain about the canonical client name which is to do with reverse dns. I understand this can be turned off at runtime of qpopper but nowhere seems to detail how to do this, apart from -R flag at runtime but as it is running through Xinetd I am not sure where to put it.

A few more details on the problem, if I VPN onto our network from my home desktop I can send mail fine. Receiving mail is also no problem, it is just sending. I have setup only our local domain in the access file for sendmail.

Fedora Networking :: Local Host Names Without Domain Using Bind?
I want to use single label host names on my local LAN, without using any domain (at least no registered one). My machines should be named in a fashion similar to 'myserver', 'mydesktop' etc. so that i from a browser on any LAN machine may write 'http://myserver', and get the webserver on 'myserver' (so NO domain part, e.g. myserver.domain).

Do i need to create a DNS zone for each host or is there a way to put all host in a single zone, if so; which? Would such a name be considered a root domain?
