I know you mentioned in another reply to your original post that it was
working and performing a lot faster.  But what I want to mention, is you
could do this as well..

1 - Setup dnsmasq on one of your machines, mainly a server type or

2 - Setup your other machines to point to that one machine running
dnsmasq, as the dns server.

3 - May not need to do this, but I also put the ips/hostnames in the one
machine that is running dnsmasq, which will also let the other machines
perform local dns'ing a lot faster, especially if your internet goes

Ways I do it above might not be correct, but that is how I been doing it
for the last few years when I first needed something like this and
learned about dnsmasq at the time.

Hope it works for you as well as me,
