Yes, with some caveats:Quote:> do these work w/Linux???
- A few ISPs have an aversion to Linux and may forbid your using the
service with a Linux computer. Usually there's no technical reason for
this, but tread lightly in such cases.
- You need to know what type of configuration to use, and possibly some
configuration information. You need the same information for Windows,
but configuration instructions may bury it in Windows-centric
instructions. Most important: You need to know whether your ISP uses
DHCP or a static IP address, and how to configure Linux for either of
these (neither is a problem). See next point for an important
- The latest craze in DSL setups is something called PPPoE (PPP over
Ethernet). This is *VERY* new, and is reportedly a bit flakey even in
officially-supported OSs (namely Windows). Linux support is emerging,
but if you have a choice, I'd recommend you go with a service that
doesn't use PPPoE, at least at the moment. Some sales personnel don't
even seem to know that's what their ISPs are using now, so dig deep on

Actually my ISP (GTE) uses DHCP and Linux works fine with it. In fact,
I'd love to get a static IP but they don't want me to have one.

I have 2 network cards and 1 modem in a Linux Box with RH6.
My cable modem uses the modem to start a PPP session, and the network card
is then hooked up to the VPN of the ISP.
I would like to setup a IP Masquraded Firewall to hook some of my other
behind the firewall.
I cannot find a HOW-TO to setup the Linux box using this type of Cable
have only found 2 way cable modems. Can someone point me it the right
My problem is that I don't know how to get Linux connected, then also, how
do I configure
ipchains or ipfwadm to use the correct rule set. Do I do the modem or the
network card. The
network card has a static IP of 10.0.0.1 which is usally used for VPNs. My
is of corse not supporting Linux, so I have to do it myself. The PPP dialup
uses DHCP to
assign my address so I have dhcp setup.
Thanks in advance..
