Gateway problems


Hi there.

I got Mandrake 9.2 running with a modem and a ehternet card. I want to use this machine to connect my network to the internet.

I've run the connection wizard. I can dial up with my modem. I ran the DrakGw wizard and got the connection shared with my WinXP machine. Prblems is every time I reboot the linux machine, DrakGw is disabled. How can I force this to be enabled when linux boots?

TIA.


Also, I disabled the firewall since All Seeing Eye cant ping the servers anymore. But apart from browsing the net, I cant ping game servers to play on. I thought this was the firewall, but I am wrong. Since IE now uses a proxy (for some bizarre reason if I drop the proxy settings IE dont see the net no more), ASE probably dont work (no proxy settings in ASE yet). How can I get past this?

TIA.

In DrakConnect, in your dial up connection configuration preferences there should be 'Start at boot' option.

Wont that try to connect to the net when the machine boot? Or will that only start the Gateway? Thing is, I cant be connected to the net 24/7. Only from about 7 pm to 7 am during the week and 7 pm Friday to 7 am monday during the weekend (nice telecoms company we have, hey?).

I also need to find a way to dial my subscription remotely, i.e from command prompt kind of way (so I can SSH in and dial up).

If ppp0 (dial-up) is your gateway it works only after you have the connection running.

In your case a script that would do everything to setup your connection would be a good idea.
The command that's started by kppp is pppd (it's configuration files are in /etc/ppp).
