DHCP configuration and incoming telnet, ssh
Hi Linux gurus, especially to you master peter (peter_robb),
I got another question, i configured the network of my slackware 10 machine as DHCP so when i run the "ifconfig eth0" command, the output was:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:02:E3:55:06:2B
inet addr:172.23.88.251 Bcast:172.23.88.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:1904 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:214267 (209.2 Kb) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt:5 Base address:0xe000 Memory:dfdfe000-dfdff080
is this correct? did i get the assigned IP address? pardon me, coz our network here is protected by firewall so we cannot ping other machines.
as for the telnet and ssh configuration, what would be the right thing to do in order for my slackware linux to accept telnet and/or ssh from other machines?
