I have this network setup. Both the server and the SOHO router have fix, distinct public ip addresses and public domain names (e.g.: server.com, soho.com) pointing to them. My question is what private domain names should I use for the subnet behind the soho router to make the names consistent? Should it look like xxxx.soho.com or it is not important because the subnet is behind a NAT?
Second question: The server has two NICs and the os (debian) asks for the name of the computer and the domain during the installition. Should I use (name=server, domain=com) or (name=something, domain=server.com)? Can it have a public name and another name in the private subnet at the same time?
