I want all DNS requests that are for *.internalhost to resolve to the same IP address. How is this possible using Ubuntu?

  • Do you only need this to happen on one machine, or do you need it to happen for all machines on your local network? – Jim Salter Nov 23 '12 at 23:45

Try this: http://daniel.hahler.de/easy-dns-wildcard-setup-for-local-domains-using-dnsmasq

Failing that, set up BIND and create a zone for an "internalhost" TLD with wildcard A record resolution. Which is probably more work than you're looking for. (Wildcard resolution from /etc/hosts, which is probably what you really want, isn't actually possible.)

  • Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – ζ-- Nov 24 '12 at 18:18
