linux/windows question


Hi

I have a win2000 PC using DSL and a Redhat PC connected to the win PC over a LAN. Can I configure the linux PC to use the win PC as a gateway to the internet?

If windows is set up to share the internet, then it will want to take on 192.168.0.1 as it's IP address and will insist on being the DHCP server for any other machine. I epxect the Linux box will jsut need to be set up for DHCP client, and all should work well.

I'd recommend you take windows out of the front line though...I use ipcop as a firewall and internet sharing - just about any old PC will do - and it works very nicely. Check www.ipcop.org
