I re-installed both slack on both my systems just and set everything up and I can ping.... what do ya know???
I am now trying to find some BASIC BEGINNER FRIENDLY instructions on how to use Samba or NFS to share my files.
Oh yeah I found this script is supposed to be for sharing internet access what do yo think??
Dial-on-demand enables computers on a network to use one dial-up connection for everyone on the network. Placing the following code into /etc/rc.d/rc.inet2 (just after the IPV forward code) will allow this to happen. Just have the other computers use this computer as the gateway.
# This is to establish Dial-on-demand
# PPPD_AUTO: 0 = off, 1 = on. Pretty simple huh?
if [ "$PPPD_AUTO" = "1" ]; then
echo "Activating Dial-on-Demand."
# Replace with the Nameserver of YOUR ISP or just their address
route add -host 255.255.255.255 dev eth0
Dropping Internet connection
# killmodem - by Jack S. Lai
# This script will hang-up a modem connection correctly. It was written
# to hang-up a dial-on-demand PPPD interface before the five-minute default
# timeout when called.
kill -HUP $MDMPID
