Let me thank you all in advance. I have been a fan of the Linux
movement and hope Linux will be biger then MickeySoft.
Well here is what I need help on. I have an old Compaq laptop that I
will be using as a Lanalyser for our network. The laptop will monitor
over 3000 systems, and connections from the internet into our network.
I want to install Redhat 5.0 and connect it to the hub. The problem
is the laptop does not have an ethernet card. We need to make a
connection from the RS232 seiral port.
What I am looking for is how do I make an RS232 wired to ethernet
connection. Pin placement. and what packages need to be installed,
this is just going to be a min install so it can do only Lanalysing.
I also don't want it to be seen from the internet.
