How to use the fedora 14 hostname in the URL of the apache server??

Hey everybody!

Im looking for help, 4 days ago i started the mission to call my GLPI system from a hostname URL... i dont want use the IP address... but im dont know what i do!

I have Fedora 14 installed on VirtualBox running with the network interface bridge mode, fix IP address and in the dns server the name that i want is already registered... i have direct access to the network and the apache and mysql works fine... and here in my office we have a windows 2K3 domain controller and all the computers are logged in the domain... i dont know if i have to put the fedora linux in the domain or just configure something to work...

Someone can help me? i dont know if i was cleare...

Today for use the glpi system i have to put in the URL bar:

but i want: http://fedoraserver/glpi/

i allready look for the samba configuration to put fedora into domain, but dont works...

You can run a DNS server , dnsmasq would work, point your windows boxen to the fedora box for dns, or you could add the fedora server to your hosts file on your 2 windows boxes.

Adding to the hosts file is trivial so long as it is only 2 boxes and 1 server.

If it gets to be much more then that , go with dnsmasq (run dnsmask on the fedora server).
If it is not broken, tweak it... If you break Fedora you get to keep both pieces :p

The windows 2k3 domain controller you mentioned is probably already configured to serve DNS for your domain. The path of least resistance is to use it.

That said, I can offer no advice on how to configure it.
