Unhappy Got Mess With Networking


Hello Friends,
First let me thanks to u guys for encourangeing me to install linux. I couldnt get through these problems can any 1 of u expert would help me to get out of it.

1) Connecting to Internet : I get mine internet connection through a local internet service provider. the guy has given me an ip address which is 172.16.17.2. i use to manually add this ip address in mine windows tcpip configration So i suppose this is mine static ip. After that i use to put his ip address in mine internet exporer ie. http:\\172.16.1.1 so apage would open and i use to enter mine userid and password and than able to connect to internet. I have now proxy address and i had kept the setting to automatic.
Now i have able to get mine network Up and also able to get the page 172.16.1.1 ie where i put mine user id and pass but i m not able to browse in redhat linux. i have tryied mine service provider ip ie. 172.16.1.1 proxy server setting but it doesnt work so do u any of guy have soluition to this problem.

2) I need help to browse mine network computers. ie. the network neightbourhood in winxp is there any software or command through which i can browse their machine.

3) I want to get access to mine rest of partion of mine hardisk wich is fat32 and ntfs...


Thanks in advance....

Hello, and welcome to LQ.

Your questions are three seperate issues and should really be divided into seperate threads.

1) As far as the proxy server issue goes your browser should have no problem connecting and using the proxy server if it's configured for the correct ip and port manually. Automatic may not work in every case so I would go with manual configuration until you get it working.

2) Lookup information on Samba for windows networking.


3) Requires kernel support for the filesystems.



Maybe you could provide some more information about the browser your using. Your Linux distro information.

Firewall settings are usually suspect when networking problems are encountered.

well I am not sure how to help you with your network problem, but you're file sharing with winxp can be resolved by installing samba, it is a software package for *nix based machines to fileshare and print share with windows machines.

The second problem about accesing your fat32 portion of your harddisk

1)create a directory at the root level ie at the / use this directory as the mount point for the fat32 partition.

2)edit the file(s) /etc/mtab and /etc/fstab they should be pretty self explanatory add a new entry in each regarding your fat32 partition and when you enter the filetype use vfat then exit and save the files, next time you reboot your fat32 partition will automatically mount.

For the time being until next reboot type the command

mount /dev/hd** /[name of mount point you created]

good luck

Sounds like there is no proxy then if they know what their talking about.


try this

make sure you have this line in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

PEERDNS=yes


then run this

dhclient eth0

ifconfig eth0 172.16.17.2

route add default gw 172.16.1.1

Then add the nameservers to /etc/resolv.conf so the file looks like this..like this

nameserver ipaddress
nameserver ipaddress
