You have to give us some more info.

How are you connected to the Internet, do you use a router, a dail-up modem or something else ?
And how are thing connected to each other.

Gitzo645,

Your are not very generous with your information so I assume that the dail-up connection is made on your windows xp computer.

1) you have to get the DNS-server address and default gw from your windows computer; you can do that by typing the following command while you have an connection to the internet.
ipconfig /all
2) give the nic in your windows box the following address
192.168.0.1 mask 255.255.255.0 and the default gw found at 1)
3) give the nic of your linux box the following address
192.168.0.2 mask 255.255.255.0 default gw 192.168.0.1


try to make an internet connection if that fails
try to ping from both sides if you can see the other side, if you can ping the unix box but not the windows box run that "configure ..." program again if that fails give me the info what is happening where.

Hello G,


Every major distribution has a grafic interface to make it easy to configure linux, but all distribution are not setup in the same way and i use fedora.
1) You must look for a function to configure your network to be able to create a dail up connection.
2) Mandrake has his own firewall you have to setup and activate.
