RH9 (newbie) networking
I installed RH9 at the weekend on a spare machine. I'm not ready to make a total switch to Linux just yet, but the aim is there... Anyhoo, my adsl cnxn runs from my Win2k box. It's an internal PCI modem. I want to share the connection with my new Linux box but I'm struggling to get this going.
This is what I think I know:
I have to enable networking in Win2k and have netbios and TCP/IP services installed. I have to set my internet connection as sharable. I have to assign each machine an IP.
I've done all of this giving win2k 192.168.0.1 and RH9 192.168.0.2
I have a fixed IP address with my adsl, should this be the gateway address? WHat about DNS servers - do I need to specify these?
I'm all a bit confused here, if anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful.
