Configuring firewall and internet sharing


I got hold of a set of Mandy 9.0 and a another PC and installed it fresh

In fact decided to use GNOME as it is fully GUI.

I am trying to share internet with a server and workstations but it is on another floor

So I am thinking of testing it on a stand alone PC

While trying to configure it asks fr server etc.

Anybody did a connection to a stand alone PC?

Also I was trying to test network connections using the console

I got the loopback test ok but not the ifconfig (ipconfig/all)

Keep gettin the message: command not found

Any suggestions

Thank you
