I am happily hosted with Future Hosting and have a VPS with them.

They provide private network access via VPN/PPTP to my host and off-server backup space which doesn't count towards my bandwidth or storage.

Anyway, it is kind of annoying to have to type in the private IP addresses to access my VPS or the backup server. I'd be interested to find out what others are doing or could suggest to address the private name/IP space?

I could set up an inside nameserver, but that would be way overkill for just 1 VPS. I could set up host file on my router (which also proxies name lookups.)

I haven't figured out how, if possible; but is my set up capable of giving priority routing to my host via the private network, when active? If so, how?
