Wink Ethernet problems with Fedora 8 on a superserver 5013C-i


Hey all,

I got a server from garage sale and I installed Fedora 8 on it. Everything works fine except for the internet (surprise, surprise). Im not exactly sure what kind of server because its missing some of its labels, but, im pretty sure its a SuperServer 5013C-i (http://www.supermicro.com/products/s...YS-5013C-i.cfm)
I have two ethernet ports hardwired and i have the internet plugged in to eth0. I think the correct driver comes with the system (e1000).

The ethernet connections do work because i see a constant green light when i plug it in to a router and a blinking orange light when i plug directly in to the internet. When i plug the internet in to the router and the server on to the router, i get a solid green and a flashing orange.

Under the sys monitor, there is network activity, but i cannot connect to the internet. I thinking problem might have something to do with the ipv4 and ipv6 configs.The Network configure window told me the ethernet connection was an "Intel Corporation 82541EI Gagabit Ethernet Controller" Other than that im completely lost. I have searched all over for help and couldent find any, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Guess, i should have posted under networking, or servers, i just clicked the ask question link .. oops...

Looks like the nics are running and you just have to set up routing.Show us lspci output anyway, JIC. (This is the surest way to get HW info).

How are you trying to connect?

What i want to do is connect my server directly to the internet through eth0 (so i can use the server as a webserver), then rout the internet through eth1 to my homes wirless router. How would i go about routing like that? Iv tried assigning a manual ip adress (that i got from my Mac machine) but i still cannot connect to the internet.
Heres the lspci read out:

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# lspci

You would connect eth0 by DHCP, and connect eth1 by DHCP to your wireless router.
You then connect the two nics with IPTables, using bridging mode or port-forwarding. You will want to invoke IPMasquerade because of the DHCP connections.

There should be enough key-words in that to get you started

In this way, the server is an internet gateway.

internet----eth0[server]eth1------LAN-----WAP

You will also want to configure the firewall to do more packet filtering than just forwarding.
