system config w/linuxconf or control-panel


I have a dhcp box that I turning into a server with a static IP. I made all of the changes in the below files, but still can't get to the internet from my own box. I am trying to look at the Control Panel features but can't log into the control-panel via linuxconf or Control Panel. When I execute the linuxconf command I get:
"bash: linuxconf: command not found"
and when I try via control-panel I get, after startx:
bash: control-panel: command not found.
Anyone in my building can see the box, via http and ssh to it, but no one else can see it across the network. I have updated the following files with what I thought was the correct info:
hosts
hosts.conf
network
ifcfg-eth0
resolv.conf
my reference - http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...NFIG-LINUXCONF
Why can't I get to my own control panel setting?

mmm - isn;t that kind of contradictory? What "can't" people see?

If you still have problems post the output of:
ipconfig
route

preferable in [ CODE ] OUTPUT [ /CODE ] blocks (no spaces in the tags though)

You never answered my question "What "can't" people see?"

It looks like your problem is the lack of a default gateway:
route add default netmask your.netmask.goes.here gw your.gateway.goes.here dev ethX

replace:
ethX
your.gateway.goes.here
your.netmask.goes.here

with the correct vaules for your machine/network.

ok - will give that a shot -

the main problem is that people can't see the any web pages, ping the box, traceroute to it or ssh to it (ouside of my local building)

That would make sense to it being a default route but you will also need seome sort of public address if you are receiving requests from another network.
