I have Ubuntu 6.10 server ed. + Windows in dual boot.
I have been having trouble with DHCP server but thanks to people in this forum i managed to make it working.
Now, the problem i've got is that i can't connect to the internet from Ubuntu. I have a network set up, and all the computers get the IP address from the Ubuntu computer via DHCP, they all browse the internet and access files on the server with no problem, the Ubuntu PC (i call it server) has a static IP address, but it can't access the internet. I've got ADSL, with a Cisco router and my card is an Intel 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Card.
My computer, for example, has 10.32.2.12, the server is 10.32.2.10.
The router is a Cisco router with no DHCP server, so the only place they can be getting the IP's is from the server.
Server is online at least in the internal network, because i have shared files and we all (7 ppl) can access to it.
Also, when i boot it in Windows, i access the internet with no problem.
I googled Ubuntu firewall and as far as i undersand, having a firewall is recommended, Ubuntu does have a firewall technically speaking, but has no GUI.
I try to install one GUI for it, such as Firestarter, Lokkit, but i cant because i need the internet for that.
I've been around and discover something else.
If i set the server to get a dynami IP address, then it does access the Internet. However, i want to have a static ip address because i want to be able to access it from outside my network also.
Does it help to figure out what's going on? I'll keep posting.
