lan set up problem
hi, I have two computers with debian etch, and I do not know much about networks. In fact I'm doing an error. Can you tell me where?
I would like to connect them at home in a LAN, and eventually have the connection to internet (I found that masquerading will do the work, but it is left for later).
Right now I try to see one from each other with ping.
The ethernet cards of both computers work.
I have an old HUB (that works), I connect the 2 ethernet cables to it and to the computers, and I set /etc/network/interfaces like this:
iface eth0 inet static
the same but
# /etc/init.d/network restart
and if I try ping one from the other, they are not reachable. Is the HUB a good way to do that?
Please, what do I miss?
