* Rich_ has quit (Quit: Page closed)
<wmack1> Todd, you mention above to build an nginx server to do dnsnsq.
<wmack1> What is dnsnsq?
<Dazed_75> dnsmasq he meant
<wmack1> dns masquerading?
<Dazed_75> aye
<wmack1> k
<wmack1> is this nginx server a separate virtual machine, or does it run on the same server that runs proxmox?
<Dazed_75> basically doing dns for local network and caching results from "ISP" DNS
<Dazed_75> I presume it is running on one of the virtual machines
<Dazed_75> nginx that is
<wmack1> I see.
<toddc> I am glad someone does!
<toddc> Eric Shubert is supposed to be there to guide us Sat
<wmack1> So I was googling for nginx, and found a product from a company called nginx inc. Their product seems to be a web and mail server.
<wmack1> Is that the nginx that I should be looking at?
<Dazed_75> yep
<toddc> yes is it a smaller version of apache as I understand it
<wmack1> But you want to use it as DNS server for the internal network?
<Dazed_75> though what was told to me was as an Apache replacement.  Sounds it it does more than that
<Dazed_75> no, two separate things
<Dazed_75> at least that is what I thought
* tagumcity2 ( has joined #Ubuntu-US-AZ
* tagumcity3 has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
<wmack1> So nginx and the dns server are two different things altogether, right
<wmack1> ?
<Dazed_75> So I believe
<toddc> no I think it is the same
<toddc> ArchFan89: do you remeber what eric wanted to do on the proxmox server?
<ArchFan89> no
<toddc> all I recall was that nginx was to be used to route internal DNS I think
