If you are using the dhcp server in the router to assign ip addresses, then I
think that it is safe to assume that you have no name server on your local
If this is the case, then you will most likely be relying on the /etc/hosts to
obtain your ip addresses from a name.
If you were to have a named server in your client.conf such as:
where "myRouter" is defined in your /etc/hosts file to point to the router
Would that work?
