comment Deisgn question: DHCP hostname and corporate networks
Aaron, I think you nailed it. That was what I was looking for. DHCP hostnames even if the IP addresses are private must be reachable since they will be NAT'ed. But I cannot expect IP addresses across subnets be reachable and they most likely won't be.

Even DHCP is mostly used with private IP Addresses they will be NAT'ed which means that NAT server will atleast be in the DNS server locally. Which means the hostname will be reachable within the company. Correct?

comment Deisgn question: DHCP hostname and corporate networks
Thank you for answering my question. Though the question could have been framed better you understood it. I wanted to know how the corporate deployment works and know that what I see at home is not correct.

comment Deisgn question: DHCP hostname and corporate networks
John, You are assuming things about me that you don't know. The question was specifically about if the DHCP hostbames are populated in the DNS Server or not. I KNOW networking and concepts but I do not know how the deployment is done in a corporate network. I cannot run with what I see in my home network and so I was trying to tap into the community's knowledge.

Thank you for answering my question without questioning my knowledge of networking. Though the question could have been framed better you understood it. I wanted to know how the corporate deployment works and know that what I see at home is not correct.

comment Using a laptop as a server via wifi over a VPN using DHCP
I know this is a horrible idea and should never be done. I just simplified my design problem and presented it in a way that is easy to grasp for everyone by leaving out unnecessary details. I just wanted to discuss was the issues I need to keep in mind given my current scenario. Can you elaborate why all those are bad ideas? May be that is what I am looking for.
