Hi;=0AI have a production server that I've crashed a few times by working o=
n it directly and making mistakes. As a result, I've finally built a mock s=
erver on my home PC on a separate hard drive with nothing but FBSD. I also =
have a laptop. All are connected by DHCP to a satellite dish. My question i=
s, how can I surf my laptop to pull up Web pages generated from the home-ba=
sed FBSD machine? What kind of networking is necessary? How do I call it up=
? Can this be handled through DHCP, or do I need to use BIND? Or something =
else? What good resources are out there for studying this? The FBSD manual =
wasn't much help, unfortunately. =0A=0AConversely, I could surf to the FBSD=
 machine from the FBSD machine. But I built this mock server like my workho=
rse...no mouse, no X, no browser. Would I have to rebuild it to incorporate=
 those? Or just build stuff from ports? Finally, which solution is easiest.=
