i connected my win98 computer with a linux machine (suse5.2). the linux
machine works as a gateway to the internet (t-online). i am using isdn with
a fritz card. I enabled masquerading.
the internet access works fine from both machines.
The problem is that the linux machine diales t-online although at times i
don`t want an internet connection.
As long as the linux machine is powered on alone the computer doesn`t dial.
When i turn on the windows machine linux starts dialing, even i don`t start
the explorere or anything else.
the log file shows a dns query (which is t-online).
can anybody help me stopping these automatic dialups?. I don`t want to
setup a dns server on my linux machine.
*note: my ip address as well as the pointtopoint address changes (dynamic ip
address for internet)
i don`t use routed; i dont use samba; i don`t have a dns server installed on
my lan; i don`t have an official domaine name, but as the linux
configuration asks for one i chose schreiber.home (any suggestion if that`s
dns server: 18.104.22.168 # nameserver of t-online (internet provider)
computer name pii400
192.168.1.1 p133.schreiber.home #this is the linux server
eth0 192.168.1.1 domaine schreiber.home name p133
ippp0 192.168.0.99 ;pointtopoint 192.168.0.1
after boot i login as root and set the default route with
route add default gw pointtopoint
the routing table looks like that:
p133.schreiber.(can`t see more on screen) * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 dummy0
pointtopoint * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ippp0
192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
default pointtopoint 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 ippp0
192.168.0.99 p133.schreiber.home p133
192.168.1.1 p133.scheiber.home p133
192.168.1.4 pii400.schreiber.home pii400
192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0 etho
thank`s in advance.
