Exclamation Help with Debian 2.2r6


Hey guys, let me tell you my problem.
I managed to get up and going my LAN, with my Red Hat 7.2 box as the server and another comp. with Windoze XP. Now, I built another computer with old parts from the other 2 and I installed Debian 2.2r6 on it. I connected to the LAN and the computer ping each other, but I don't know how to set up Debian so it'll connect to the internet as a client as the Windoze PC does. Can someone help me with this? Thanks.

Is the modem connect to Linux box or Window.
If it is Windows they you need to setup modem/connect sharing?

If it is Linux the you need setup ipmasq.
Which distro are you using to connect to web?

Check the Linux Documentation Project for IPMASQ HOWTOS: http://tldp.org

I did the IPMASQ already, but I need to set up Debian so it'll connect through the Red Hat 7.2 box!

If all the boxes have static IP address.
Add the hostname info to /etc/hosts on the RH server.

if you LAN domianname name is home.net
and the RH ip address is 192.168.1.1 to /etc/resolv.conf

--------------- Debian --------

search home.net
nameserver 192.1681.1

----------------------------------------
and for good measure add the hostname and ip address
to the /etc/hosts of Debian box.
