Just a simple network question really. Sorry but could not find the answer to any tutorial.
I've got a spare NIC which I installed on my linux system which is working fine through a LAN (gateway 192.168.0.1, eth0 192.168.0.3)
How do I configure the new NIC eth1 so I can connect an old win 98 machine through this one ? Thanks.
I'm trying to share my internet connection from my linux with the old windows.
Not sure if I should allocate a static IP address to the windows machine or leave it as DHCP enabled. And if so how do I configure eth1 (what IP address, route etc)
Thanks in advance
I have done that now so ifconfig gives me this:
eth0 inet addr:192.168.0.3 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
eth1 inet addr:192.168.0.10 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
Monitoring the network now gives me the option to select eth1 but only send traffic is seen (very little)
Something is still not right
I have also noticed the lights at the back of eth1 NIC are off. Does that mean the card is not installed properly ?
Should eth0 and eth1 be on the same subnet mask or different ?
When I tried :
eth0: 192.168.0.3 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255
eth1: 192.168.0.30 netmask 255.255.255.224 broadcast 192.168.0.255
I lost connectivity to the outside world. No DNS server IPs seen.
When I brought eth1 down, all is normal again.
I guess I will have to give some comand for DNS servers, but don't know how, and if required for both eth0 & eth1
Will get there eventually !
