having installed linux (6.2 (zoot)) for the first time, I'm having trouble with networking
the machine is physically connected to a network. I've configured various settings and CAN get the machine to connect to the internet, but CANNOT get the machine to be seen by the rest of the PCs on our network. some kind of problem connecting to our NT domain..?
so far, I've set the following files up like:
GATEWAY=<**work IP address**>
nameserver <**work IP address**>
we have another linux box sucessfully connected to our network with the above settings, but it has another line in it's resolv.conf
I tried adding this line to the resolv.conf of the problem machine. it saved sucessfully, but after rebooting the line had vanished!
can anyone advise. are there any other files that need checking? is there a reason why the extra line added to resolv.conf vanishes upon rebooting?
I installed red hat 6.2 using the standard GNOME WORKSTATION installation. should I have chosen SERVER in order for the machine to be seen on an NT network?
thanks in advance. I'll be happy to provide any more info
To connect to the NT domain you need to join the NT domain with samba. Not really sure if they're gui tools to do this, but you can join if you shut down samba and run smbpasswd -j domain -r pdc -U administrator (where pdc, domain is your domain and pdc)
