comment Cross Platform Encrypted File Server / NAS?
My Mac laptops have directories that have symlinks in them. When I back up those directories to the NTFS drive, it can cause problems. There are also issues with backing up files that have names that contain characters that aren't allowed on Windows. Would FAT32 help with those two problems? I'm not a fan of the 4 GB file size limit with FAT32, either. I appreciate your help, though!

comment Using Dual DHCP DNS Server with VirtualBox
I saw that too, but I think that might be for the pro version or perhaps a different program altogether. Running pnds /? shows these switches: /ns, /po, /ca, /noca, /resolveall, /ho, and /log.

pDNS looked much simpler for what I'm trying to do, so I tried it out and it worked! I would vote you up, but I don't have a high enough reputation. I will likely accept your answer and award the bounty, but I'll hold off for now in case somebody comes up with some other answer that's somehow better. I don't see a way for pDNS to just run silently in the background, though. Is running it with Hidden Start a bad idea?

comment Using Dual DHCP DNS Server with VirtualBox
My router is set up to always give the Mac the 192.168.1.50 IP address. The thing is, if I take the Mac somewhere, I would have to reconfigure Dnsmasq (which may require a restart, but I'm not sure about that) and update the VM's DNS address. That's two places to change the IP, possibly requiring a restart. If I can get Dual DHCP DNS Server configured properly then I would only have to update the IP address in one place.

comment Using Dual DHCP DNS Server with VirtualBox
Dnsmasq (on the Mac) is configured to say that the address for anything-you-want.dev is 127.0.0.1. When I'm on the Mac and I ping foo.dev, Dnsmasq reports that the IP address is 127.0.0.1, which happens to be correct for the Mac. But if the VM is using the Mac for DNS, pinging foo.dev will, as usual, cause Dnsmasq to report that the IP address is 127.0.0.1. So if I go to foo.dev in a browser on the VM, the VM will expect that foo.dev is hosted on itself (since that's what Dnsmasq reported), but that's not correct. Do you know how to configure Dual DHCP DNS Server to do what I want?

comment Using Dual DHCP DNS Server with VirtualBox
I actually already have it set up to be bridged. One issue with just pointing the VM's internal DNS to the Mac is the Mac would reply with 127.0.0.1, which would make the VM think that the websites are hosted on itself, which isn't correct. I could make it reply with its actual LAN IP instead of 127.0.01, but the problem is this Mac is a laptop and I take it with me places sometimes, so my IP address isn't always 192.168.1.50. I would like to only have to change the IP in one place when I go somewhere, and I imagine that would be in the "DualServer.ini" file.
