I'm a networking newbie. I have finally received a "Static IP Address" from
a local ISP Service Provider and I want to convert my dynamic IP assigned
number to the static address from the local ISP. The problem is my linux
box, "server", on my home LAN is set up to use Dynamic IP addresses with my
current ISP. I am using IP Masquerade and ipfwadm firewall on the linux
server. The win95 machines connect to the WWW through the linux box just
fine with my current setup BUT, I can't get it to work with the new static
IP #. If someone can help me or point me to a specific HOWTO on setting up
a dialup ppp connection with a static IP address I would appreciate it very
If this is a dumb question my apologies to the group and I will keep
searching for the answer.
Thanks in advance for the help!
