For Internetworking, you'll probably need to look at...
a) the NET-3-HOWTO,
b) the Firewall-HOWTO,
c) the ISP-HOWTO, and
d) the IP-Masquerade mini howto
Briefly, unless you're rich or lucky, you only get one IP address for
Internet access. You have to configure your Linux machine to share
to the internet by masquerading your other hosts IP addresses as the
IP address. The mechanisms to masquerade your IP addresses are buried in
Firewall setup (Firewall-HOWTO and IP-Masquerade mini howto), while the
details about ISP hookups are buried in NET-3 and ISP howto's

I am a beginner.
I could install the OpenBSD 2.6. However in the network setup during the
installation I wasn't quite sure what to do.
I want to use it as a firewall to protect a windows-network.
1 NT Server, 4 WS
Firewall (Openbsd, Squid, Openssh, QMail) => connected with NT-Server,
not part of the windows network
(to network) nt 10.0.0.1
(to firewall) nt 10.0.1.2
Firewall fw 10.0.1.1
PPP-setup was not a problem
I entered the following values at the prompts: Is that correct?
Default route: router-adress ISP (eunet-gw.mydomain.xx)
Primary nameserver: DNS 1 from ISP
The following resolv.conf was created: (What is the meaning of this
file?? Where is doc??)
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (DNS 1 from ISP)
lookup file bind ==>
what means that???
I want to use x-window. I installed the packages: xserv26.tar.gz
When I try to start x-windows with xdm there is no error message like
command not found. But it isn't starting up.
How to configure?
Thank you very much
