hello all, I am using fedora and I am tryign to setup a dns sever for my lan. When i start to setup the dns it asks me to choose either forward reverse or slave zones. As this is just for my network to resolve internet addresses, what should I choose? Help is greatly appreciated.
Well I did what u said. I t's started. but heres a questions.. It's been a long time since i played with linux so i am full of these all over again. I have the linux box, setup on the cable modem , via eth0 and eth1 is to the hub. the linux box i setup succesfully as a dhcp server now. How do i share the internet connection? i thoughtt that the dns issue would fix it. it didn't.

You have to change the gateway setting in windows. The gateway should be LAN-IP for the computer which is between internet and your LAN.
...also concerning the pinging - it is probably as you said that your firewall is configured to block ping requests (namely a type of packet called ICMP). If you just dump your firewall script here I can have a look at it and tell you what you should change.
Well I have the dhcp setting the default gateway now. So I am good there. I believe i have cracked the problem with pinging through. I used the script from the above link (thanx maxut) but my iprange for my home network is different. I use 20.20.20.x. Well I didn't change that in the iptable.conf. So now hopefully this will work. Will be giving that a try.
Zytx, were can i find this firewall script? you are not referring to the iptable script are u? I am a newb to networking linux. I know enough to mess stuff up
