nic card


Hello

Im running mandrake 9.1

Ive installed, compiled an ircd (I know how to compile, edit them)

But for some reason mine when its time to boot wont and I believe its because the ip needs to be put t the nic card.

like on xp i go to my nick card and put in an IP how do I do this on mandrake ?

I dont see anywhere in the menu a nic card.

also ifconfig shows me ip's which ip is my actual external ip ?

It's in Mandrake Control Center-> Network and Internet -> DrakConnect. It shows a table listing your interfaces and their IPs.
Your local IP is probably 192.168.x.y, 10.x.y.z. A different IP should be global one.

I am not sure in XWindows but in terminal you can go to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and find the file ifcfg-eth0, enter your ip there, it should be like this :

DEVICE=eth0
IPADDR=192.168.0.1
BROADCAST=192.168.0.255
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.0.0
BOOTPROTO=static
ONBOOT=yes

save it, and type /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart
then type ifconfig, you saw your ip there. then try to reboot your system.

type w in your command prompt and you can he login from where and what he is doing right now.

All said just now was done in terminal coz i don't use XWindows so i don't know how to use it in XWindows

It's first option of the three you have right from the menu.
