Hardware setup to experiment and Learn with


I am one of those dangerous newbies where know enough to be dangerous. I somehow have been able to setup and use a linux box as a router and firewall but if I want to change something or try an experiement with it I could be seriously hurt by my teenagers who would not like the internet to be down.

So what I would like to do is setup another box on the local side with a statis IP as an test router/firewall for another windoze machine. My problem is I'm not sure how to setup the test machines two network cards.

I have tried but when I try to ping from my test routers two ip's I can only ping one of the ip's.

can this be done?

Thanks for any help.

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

Can you please give us an idea of the physical set-up?

I also am not sure where you're pinging from, and whether
the "router" is meant to be just that, or whether you're
also playing with NATing ... what are the IP addresses?



Cheers,
Tink

No worries ... and just try to supply as much back-ground info as
possible that may be relevant to your task. While a good number
of members here are very good (and clever) I can't recall any
clairvoyants :}


Cheers,
Tink
