Ok so first of i want to say sorry that i couldn't replay earlier.
taylorkh a LAN party is as party at witch nerds like me connect there PCs via a router and start playing Games like CS or any game that has a multilayer capability. The router it self is only there to assign the IPs and make the conection.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol A.K.A DHCP
AS fare as i know it is there to bring new PCs in to networks with out having to configure them manually.
Our router should have it running.
We have not jet started with the networking part of the system because we have to get the server running first.
So fare we have UBUNTU 11.10 installed on the server and we have to configure it so that we could connect it to the PC that is running EDUBUNTU.
O a static IP address is a permanent IP that never changes. It is assigned to the server to make networking easier.
To change the eth0 seting i thing we would have to edit the file [ /etc/network/interfaces ]
sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces (as the command to edit the file)
When the file opens these lines should be add and can be modified as needed
iface eth0 inet static
And that is all i know so fare.
If i forgot anything pleas let me know.
TO onebuck : the link from Linux Home Networking was really helpful Thank you.
