Connecting to internet through DHCP


I am running Mandrake 10.0 and have it on a LAN. The machine has 2 NIC's, one which connects directly to the internet and the other that connects to the switch/hub.
I set up a DHCP server to share and manage the net connections. The other machines on the network are running Windows XP, they can access the DHCp but cant access the internet.

Can anyone help me with this?

Isn't this a windows question then? Or doesn't your linux box connect to the internet either? Anyway this is more appropriate in the networking forum.

You need to set up internet sharing as well as dhcp... The mandrake wizard in the MCC should get it going for you....

You need to set up your DHCP server (is that on your Mandrake box? I didn't quite understand) to give your out the "default gateway". If you're trying to turn your Mandrake box into a router, then the default gateway you will need to give is the IP address of the Mandrake NIC that connects to the Switch.

The Mandrake box connects to the internet and I already set up the DHCP. I set up the internet connection sharing as well using the wizard in Mandrake CC but the other machines on the network cant seem to connect

You need to configure ip forwarding in iptables. There is a very good script generator for this here.
