    How do I setup Tomato 1.28 to resolve local host names? We had power surges over the weekend and the router seems to have been reset, and none of the Tomato settings are there anymore. I didn't set this up, our last IT guy did, and he didn't write any of it down. I've added a static entry into the DHCP list for our telephony server, but nothing will resolve it. The phones are trying to connect to a machine named "pbx", but it will not resolve to the IP address and our phone system is down.

    It may be as simple as setting up a DHCP reservation for your pbx on the BASIC-> STATIC DHCP/ARP/IPT page with the machine's mac address, enable checked, ip address assigned and pbx in the hostname box. You then need to enable "Use Internal DNS" on the ADVANCED-> DHCP/DNS page.

    Good luck!

    IN fact, it is that simple. :)

    The domain name listed in that Basic - Identification page will be your domain suffix. So the FQDN of a device on the network will be its name in the static DHCP page plus a dot and the suffix in the Basic - Identification page. If your PBX is called "pbx" and your domain name is "local", then the FQDN is pbx.local.
