I'm pretty much a complete noob when it comes to Linux and TCP/IP. I've searched around on google and in forums a fair amount to try to find how I should configure my network, but could find no answers geared enough towards what I'm trying to do.
I apologize in advance if what I'm asking is ridiculously easy, or If I neglected to provide enough information.
My hardware setup is as follows :
Wireless Router (192.168.0.1)
| | |
| | Win Box (192.168.0.3)
| Win Box (192.168.0.4)
Linux Box eth0(192.168.0.2)
Linux Box eth1(?)
Ok, so I'm trying to have my Linux box set up as gateway for a particular Win box.
I recompiled my kernel so I have Iptables instead of Ipchains (I know nothing about either but I needed Iptables apparently in order to run an application called Shorewall (www.shorewall.net
) which is supposed to be a dumbed down way to set up a gateway). I am using a Debian distro w/ kernel version 2.4.20 (tho I'm not sure that matters since this is just a basic TCP/IP question)
My questions are what should the IP/gateway addresses of the eth1 device be, and what should the IP/gateway addresses of the ethernet device in the Win box be?
Also, if those are set to the correct values, will any other tweaking be required? Do I need shorewall? Do I need to figure out how to use Iptables?
As I said before, I apologize if these are dumb questions.
I will respond with any additional information needed. Thank you in advance for any assistance provided.
