I like this idea. I have used "dnsmasq" in the past. It's a very simple
caching DNS server and DHCP server (DHCP is disabled by default). The
configuration is easy, easy, easy.
I might try this out, but first, let's try Timothy's fix.
Timothy> What about adding:
Timothy> 127.0.0.1 localhost ... laptop laptop.workdomain.com
Timothy> to /etc/hosts?
This was enough:
127.0.0.1 localhost laptop
Thanks to everyone who shared my curiosity about this problem.
