Here is what works for me:
Those are SouthWind's DNS numbers by the way
# Local machines
10.0.0.1 panther.ses.net panther
10.0.0.2 cougar.ses.net cougar
10.0.0.3 tiger.ses.net tiger
10.0.0.4 bobcat.ses.net bobcat
ses.net is my made up domain for my LAN
order hosts bind
Note that with the above I am not running my own DNS server and I am
not currently doing IP Masquerading. If you are doing those, then
things could be different for you.
