Home LAN Setup
Hi there Guys,
I've got myself in a bit of a pickle. I am trying to setup my FC5 box at home to take care of the internet connection using rp-pppoe. I tried the other day without a huge amount of success.
I have my ADSL2 modem / router in Pure bridged mode which from my understanding just forwards packets off to the interface, to that a cable going directly into eth0 on the linux box
eth1 (2nd nic) in the linux box then goes off to a switch and rest of the network.
I can establish a connection from the linux box using rp-pppoe and browse sites no worries at all from the linux box but not on windows, I can't even ping IP's but I am close I feel and it can only be something simple.
Where my confusion sets in is eth0 is set to use DHCP, do I need an IP address, subnet mask etc set on this one?
I have eth1 set to 172.17.12.1 as the IP and 172.17.12.254 as the gateway.
Should I need to set eth0 with an IP of some description, ppp0 gets an IP from my provider (dynamic) so I'm thinking perhaps I do the iptables to ppp0 rather than eth0?
Any help would be great, as I mentioned previously I feel I am very close but not entirely sure where I'm going wrong.
