just looking for where I should look to get started, ie, what man pages/files/applications should I look at to get started setting my slackware box up as my home router/gateway?
My basic setup is:
DSL ?modem? -> ethernet card in my slackware box
second ethernet card in my slackware box -> switch/hub -> multiple other computers
slackware machine will have 1 static ip and serve as DNS/Mail/web server as well as routing duties.
the other machines will probably all but 1 be windows boxes. I'd like to give them all static 'fake' ip's so that running samba I can get to files on them from outside (that's possible right?). Would also be nice if I could run a DHCP server to asign ip's to any other machines that might be temporarily on the network.
and yes, I know there's a networking forum
Just wanted to make sure the answers I got were more slackware oriented.
