Configuration hints for self-managed Linux Machines
Sending Hostname for Dynamic DNS
If you want your Linux host accessible via dynamic DNS at
<yourhost>.dhcp[-int].phys.ethz.ch, make sure that
send host-name is used in
For more recent versions of ISC's dhclient, the following line in
/etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf should suffice:
send host-name = gethostname();
Older versions may need an explicit name there. Please use a name without domain, e.g.
send host-name "johns-laptop";
If nobody else uses that name, you remotely can access your computer by using e.g.
johns-laptop.dhcp[-int].phys.ethz.ch (continuing the example from above).
