so this is the first exposure I have had to linux, and its entire environment. i've been raised on windows, and i am used to it.
I have installed Redhat 8.0 on my old desktop, in the hopes it will serve as an effective webserver and save me money. I also need it to share my DSL internet connection.
The linux box has created "eth0", "eth1", and "ppp0". ppp0 refers to my internet connection, which *works* over eth0. eth1 isn't being listed correctly as the right model of NIC.
I have been trying to follow the HOWTO for IP Masquerading, but it is just too complex - I don't think that I should have to write code/scripts/etc just to share the darn connection - shouldn't linux do this for me? point and click? I am very confused, and the HOWTO is just making me angry.
Is there an easy was? A windows-user friendly method?
