Internet connection setup?!?!?
Hey, I have read a few posts about people haveing trouble setting up thier internet connections but didnt seem to get anything from them that helped. I just started with slackware because I would like to get an FTP and a Mail server going. install went ok ( KDE wont start kdeinit but I am using xfce insttead) I have run netconfig several times with no luck. My router uses DHCP up to 10.0.1.200 and then I can use static address after that. this computer is runninf off of a static IP (1.201) I need the Slackare box to run static as well, sothat I can route FTP and SSH, there.
ifconfig shows eth0 and lo though eth0 does not give an IP address where lo does.
what can I do?!?
this seems like something that should be simple, and yet. . .
