Hi all,

Brand new to the list, I first would like to congratulate and thank you T=
for the GREAT PIECE OF SOFTWARE you provide us with, and the DOCUMENTATIO=
EFFORT you made. If all projects had this kind of support, linux counter=20
would have exploded !!!

It would be a pleasure to make a french translation, I'll think about tha=
t and=20
have a glimpse to my planning up to Xmas....

   I run a 4 Linux Mandrake 9.0 boxes network:=20
=09- 1 Firewall (static IP on ppp0 through eth0 -,
=09- 1 Sever (I'd like to be DMZed - in, tending to become =
subnet of "One service Boxes", for www, mail, ftp, mysql, ...
=09- 1 Workstattion & 1 Laptop (local zone -
   I also would like to be able to access all my boxes from my laptop whe=
n I'm=20
on the road.
   I've read the doc's, many times the 3-interfaces guide & Tom's config,=
had a look at different (of the numerous !) threads about DNS issues in t=
list archive.
   All that done, I can't figure what's the best choice (ease of setup, c=
flexibility) for DNS setup between:
=09- running it on the FW or in the DMZ ?
=09- running two DNS, one on the FW & one in the DMZ ?

   All advices & tips will be greatly appreciated, as well as sample DNS=20
configuration files for a simple setup like mine, a complete network setu=
tutorial (involving all services listed above) is on the way & will be GP=
as soon as first steps will be written and cleaned.

  Once again thank you Tom for your work and time devotion. I'am always=20
pleased to join another community, reading the list archive I've no doubt=
this one will be another good one ! ;-)
   Waiting for your answers, I go back to the docs to glean pieces of inf=
