about the same
well i don't exactly know about how my n/w is laid out .... but will soon let you know about it
But this is a dual boot system.
At present i can only tell you about how i configured my n/w connection:
I just had to create an ethernet connection and specify my private IP ... no DHCP!
Also i had to specify a gateway IP and DNS servers' IP
Now Sify has provided me with an executable with which i can connect to their SAM server.
I guess this won't have to do anything with my n/w configuration....Maybe...i'm not sure...
But i guess it has got to do something with windows .... in other words windows is able to successfully connect and linux at first boot is not....
I don't know how to explain this...but i'll try
Basically i asked this to someone from IIT, he says that windows is fiddling with my BIOS....but then if so, how am i able to connect with when i reboot from windows.
Now if i turn my m/c off for abt 1/2 a day and i directly boot linux.....here i am unable to connect
So what i do is ... reboot and startup winXP...i reach the login pg and i reboot from here!! i don't login to winXP....!
Now when i boot FC2 i AM ABLE TO CONNECT...!!! This is very wierd!!!!
This means whenever i want to use my n/w in Linux i have to go to windows atleast once!!!!
I hope this wd give you somewhat an idea of what i am facing!!
Well sooner or later i will surely provide you with my n/w arch!!
Thanks a lot!
