Question Linux Server joining NT Network


Sorry if this has been posted before but I searched and couldn't find anything.

I've got a small NT network with one server (ntserver) connected to DSL via a WatchGuard firewall.
I've set up a Linux server (linuxserver) to join the network and everything is running fine (network can see linuxserver and vice versa).

The problem is that I want to share the DSL connection on ntserver as all the clients do but I can't see what to set on linuxserver to enable this.

I've also got Webmin running, so can either admin the box direct or via the web interface.

Any ideas??

How are the other clients set-up to get access to the DSL connection? Did you have to do something special on them?

Have you set the default gateway for the linuxserver to point the ntserver?

Other Win clients - basically just plugged in and set to log onto the workgroup/domain...

[sigh] I've tried so many different combinations, but currently there's no gateway - should this be the IP or name of the NT server - i.e. "ntserver"?

Do I set a "static route" as:

gw ntserver 255.255.255.0 ntserver ??

As you can see, I'm a little confused...

I don't know if setting it to ntserver's name would work or not. I've only set it to IPs. Try setting it's gateway to the ntserver's IP. You shouldn't need a route if they are on the same network and you set the ntserver's ip as the gateway (you wil need probably need to restart the network interface(s) on the linuxserver after doing this).

Some other things that come to mind (to try):

Is your ntserver serving up ip information via dhcp?

(If so, then set-up an dhcp client or for the linuxserver machine to get it's ip information from the dhcp server.)

Try without connecting to ntserver with Samba, then try again after you have connected to an share or some other network item via Samba.

On the ntserver, is the linuxserver a machine that show's up in the Domain's list of machines?

HTH,

George (and anyone else interested!) - just a quick note to let you know that one of your ideas panned out. I changed the Gateway from nothing to the IP of ntserver in the file /etc/sysconfig/network and it worked like a charm.

Thanks again for your help!

Great! Glad that worked.
