Is possible setup multiple
.local hostname on one physical computer?
- home network (behind the DSL/NAT router) (192.168.1.*)
- have a mac-mini, called as "tango.local". (set in the System.prefs). The IP-setting is "use DHCP with manual address" - the computer address is 192.168.1.10.
Now, on this mac want run
apache2 (macports version), with different
VirtualHost directives, like:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName tango.local ProxyPass / http://localhost:5000/ ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:5000 </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName another.local ProxyPass / http://localhost:3000/ ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:3000 </VirtualHost>
For this setup I need assign two different hostnames to the mac, e.g. the main
tango.local and the
another.local. Both names should be
resolve-able from the LAN, e.g. computers on the LAN (my mac-notebook) must correctly resolve the
It is possible to do this with simple way, (e.g. somewhat convience the bonjour to advertise both names for the single IP), or need setup the
bind DNS server for serving the
Bonus question: the main goal is resolve the
another.local from another mac (via bonjour). Secondary: what i need setup to allow access the
http://another.local from an windows7 notebook? (i'm total windiot - e.g. is possible somewhat convert bonjour names-addresses to the "windows
nmbd" or whatever?
.localnames simply by using the dns-sd proxy option.
