Yet another Gateway setup question ;p
You are all provably like : Man, not another guy asking this!
Well my question differs slightly.
I have an iBurst connection that has dynamic ip allocation on connection. Thanks to coaic, I can use iBurst in SuSE 10.0 but now I'm having a pain setting up my gateway. I was at 10 different sites and they just couldn't help me for weeks now (I didn't work so much on it every week because I had/have like 3 other projects to finish for next week). Really I have tried my best!
Even the textbook for my one cource in Linux "Red Hat Linux Networking and System Administration" had a paragraph or 2 about this subject but didn't help aswell.
Here is my situation:
My /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth-id-00:d0:b7:85:42:71 file has the following info (eth0):
Now my eth1 interface has this (
I need to set up the routing on my server aswell as IP masquerading.
Any help will greatly be appreciated!
O I have herd of firestarter for easy shared internet connections but this is for a project at university. Its almost done, I just have to get this routing thing working.
You need to setup your IP to a subnet of your Gateway, i.e 192.2.120.xxx. Then they can talk to one another.
Sometimes, it's easy to over think things. I've done the same thing myself a few (read: many) times
But my eth0 is my local network interface and eth1 & dsl0 is my connection to the internet. Thanks but why can you have a local connection of 192.168.0.xxx and an internet connection of 196.2.xxx.xxx that works in Windows?
Thats the kind of thing that I'm trying to accomplish.
EDIT: Also my dsl0 ip changes the whole time and my eth1 doesn't even have an ip address.
Also what would be a simple way for ip masquerading... anyone?
Thanks to nic777, I have managed to get my home gateway working.
All I had to do was setup my firewall correctly and thats it. No routing, no nothing.
