Ip-Passthrough and linux not getting along
Ok, here's the deal. I have a older linux system that I use as a server. I recently moved, and now I have aDSL rather than the cable I had before. Now, when I go into my dsl modem settings, the closest thing it has to DMZ is an "IP-Passthrough". So I set this up to point to my system, and now the system says it cannot get an IP address, and therefore cannot connect. I tried setting this up with a Windows system and it worked fine. I tried using another system as the server, same problem. I've tried a number of distro's, including Debian, Fedora Core 4, and VectorLinux. Same with all. Yet it works on Windows. I've tried 3 different machines. On all it was the same, Windows worked, Linux didn't. I've spent about 3 weeks trying to get this to work, so I would appreciate is someone who is more familar with this would help me.
