Question Newbie

I have just installed a smoothwall server. I can look at the admin pages and
I can see that my smoothwall machine is connected to the net. But I can not
surf the net with my windows xp machine which is the one on the green
network that can see the admin pages. Can any one tell me why??I had red
setup as pppoe but I think im wrong as my ADSL modem use pppoe its self and
then sends the computer its ip address Automatically. So maybe I should set
up dhcp instead of pppoe. I am using dhcp for the sever green side of it.

You have a Linux server with an XP client computer? In other words, XP has to go out over the net to access the internet?

Change it to DHCP if your server (or router) accommodates that.

You will need to set the XP machine's default gateway to the GREEN ip number.
Then in Internet Explorer, you remove any Proxy settings.
The Web Proxy in Smoothwall needs a bit of cpu power and a fast hard drive to operate well. It's often faster to go out direct rather than use the Smoothwall Proxy.
