Static IP configuration
Ok, here is the problem. I have just recently obtained a static ip from my isp. The info that I received from them was: IP, subnet, gateway, and DNS information. In a windows environment, I can enter this information in the TCP/IP settings and all is great. When I try to configure this connection on my linux box running Redhat 9, I get nothing, and I have no idea what the problem is. I have both used the command line to configure it and the GUI that came with Redhat. What exactly is the broadcast address and is it vital to the connection running at all? There is no mention of a broadcast address in windows. Can anyone give me some insight as to what is wrong?
