Yet another networking query:-)
Hello all you incredibly helpful people..!!
Having seen other help sites, i think i have found one where you know what you're talking about.
OK - Linux to Win 98 through ethernet.
Win 98 has external modem(but i can change it over)
Modem does work on Linux box( i have tried it)
What is the best program on the Linux box to use to network to the other pc?
Linuxconfig or Samba (Swat?)- i have both and tried using them but the information on where to put the relevant info is a bit sketchy.
Also if i try to apply any changes to Linux config it asks me to start a couple of programs. I select the 'do it' tab and all seems ok. But then i go back and it seems i have to start them again and again..
I can ping each pc either way but they cannot see each other, so i'm getting pretty close. if i can crack it i'll swear i'll create the easiest HOWTO ever...
Please - all i need is where to put the ip addresses, what to type in the domain/DNS areas, is it just myname or myname with a dot then the domain? Is the domain where i put the name of the workgroup i'm using as i don't actually have a domain - just a peer to peer network? See - it's all easy stuff - yeah right!
You have no idea how frustrating it is..
By the way, what would i expect to see on the win 98 box if they can connect?
I really appreciate any help you can give or similar experiences with a possible answer..
