Broadband, Airport, and OS X as Server
Category : Technology
I've updated Sendmail Enabler (to version 1.02) to add support for activating OS X's built-in Domain Name Server. This is needed to allow a web and mail server to operate behind an Airport Base Station. Without a DNS server operating on the Airport Base Station network, web and mail services will not be accessible by other machines on the Internet, port mapping by the Airport Base Station will not work, and machines on the local Airport network will not be able to hit the web and mail server by using its domain name.
It's a bit hard to explain this. So I'm looking to set up a "Broadband and OS X" page to help people connect their OS X machines to a boradband network, with or without an Airport Base Station.
