I am running
Lighttpd 1.4.28 on an embedded device. Apart from the webserver, I run
dnsmasq to allow other devices to connect to my embedded device to access the website.
My device has the capability to join other networks. So when I make my embedded device join my local home wireless network, I am able to access the website with the IP obtained by this device after joining the local home network, but not by the hostname.
When I join the local home network, I kill the
udhcpd server as my local home network has a DHCP Server and DNS Server running which automatically assigns the IP.
I pass the hostname of my device when requesting IP through
udhcpc -h "www.mydevice.com"
My problem is I am only able to access the website running on the device as :
and not as:
Can anybody tell me where am I going wrong? Am I missing something?
