new in Linux


I have a little problem.
Me and a friend of mine made up a home network with a Linux server for the Internet connection. I don't know how to make MIRC and other software to work. All the other computers (3) have Windows installed. Someone told me that I have to enable some ports and I don't know which and how to! The server is an old computer of mine (486 DX) with RedHat 5. Can anyone help me. If I don't make MIRC to work my sister will kill me...

First explain how you are using your "Linux server for the Internet connection". Does it have two NICS in it and is acting like a router/firewall. Is it preforming NAT?

Lightbulb open some ports

First you should edit the /etc/init.d so that firewall is not started. Than everything should work fine. If it doesn`t you should edit /etc/squid.conf. Just look for the ports 6660 - 7000.
Now it must work.
So now aktivate the firewall.
If now the connetion doesn`t work anymore you should allow incoming highports.
