Hello again all, I am running DRBD behind a router and between two remote machines.  I have the machine DMZed for better access but am getting errors.  Therefore the address the outside world (as well as the other drbd machine) sees is different than what the machine thinks it has.  Outside address is and ifconfig returns

I have tried adding the internal entry to /etc/hosts but it does not work hmmmm do i need to setup and internal view using dns? why is this not working.  Anyways here is the error!!!!

root at ns1:/etc# drbdadm up r0
/etc/drbd.conf:14: in resource r0, on ns1.computerking.ca:
        IP not found on this host.

I think this is causing drbd to run in standalone mode on this host here is proc output

root at ns1:/etc# cat /proc/drbd
