revised Map remote drive in Windows over SSH
corrected the confusing lack of "not", added another example that won't work to meet the 6 character requirement.

Actually this is what my question is actually about, perhaps I'll change the title of my question

Yes taht's exactly what I want! why is that frowned upon? Surely that's a nicer solution than managing hosts files

hm ok.... yeah I already have a Windows machine and an Ubuntu machine running 24/7 so not concerned about the cost :) Hm that would mean I would have to install DHCP server software as well wouldn't it? I suppose I'm already giving all my home computers static IPs on the network already so maybe I don't have to worry about that...

comment Set up Split-horizon DNS at home
Hi, thanks for the answer, I've updated my question to show what I really want. I am already implementing Plan B :) Why would I need a dedicated machine for DNS? Surely DNS server software is not very resource heavy? especially for just a home network... I am happy to learn how BIND works... But I can't figure out how to tell my router to use another machine for DNS

I'm pretty sure I have the latest firmware - community.plus.net/forum/index.php?topic=97553.0 Maybe I'll consider using my linux box as a router!

I actually have a dynamic IP and implement my own dynamic DNS. I've been trying to see if my router has a built in DNS server with no success so far. I don't see how an internet service could provide my LAN with DNS services.

Actually... looks like my ISP does support it. My router doesn't though. But because of government my ISP is going to change soon, and I don't know the new ISP, so not sure what to do about that. But yeah I actually completely forgot about IPv6 thanks

This does not solve my problem - i want the ip address reported when i'm at home to be my LAN IP, as opposed to when i am away from home. so (i think) i need to host DNS at my house.

comment Sending microphone input over Remote Desktop 7.0
This is for sending the local recording device to the remote server - what about using the remote server's recording device? Why would that be disabled?

comment Change who is logged in upon boot
I've actually fixed this via raspi-config but would still like to know how to do it on a regular linux machine. sudo grep '/bin/login' /etc/inittab gives nothing, but as i've said, i've fixed this now. it appears my machine uses getty instead?

perhaps it simply boots to whoever has uid=1000?
