Brief summary of my h/w config for reference:
LINUX BOX - RH 7.0(2.2.16-22) Sevrver with WWW and DNS selected.
A) P233 - 64Mb - 13Gb - ONLY LINUX
B) ETH0 - 192.168.100.200 - 255.255.255.0 - 3C90x
C) ETH1 - DHCP(18.104.22.168) - NE2K-P1
One of my windows boxes:
Dell Dimension 4500 - P4-2Ghz - 512Mb - 40Gb -
Realtek Card - 192.168.100.202 - Gtwy:192.168.100.200
PIII 550 - 512Mb - 30Gb - Netgear Card - 192.168.100.201
I live in Central Massachusets and my cable provider is Charter..
What is my problem? I can not get the windows machines to
connect to the internet via the Linux box. They can ping ea other,
What have I done in terms of research/configuration:
I read and applied part if not most of the following docs: DHCP mini,
troubleshooters.com IP Forwarding and DHCP info, CABLEModem How-to
Ethernet HowTO..blah blah several others. Hopefully you see I have
tried to do some homework..
'Ifconfig -a' sees both cards as listed at the top with all of the
other info ifconfig provides.
I can access the internet with the Linux box.
I did not fully install the DHCP server(dhcp-3.0.1rc10.tar.gz)
since I noticed that the windows boxes could not get out.
Here are some of my questions.
Do I need to setup LINUX as a DNS server?
In my ifcg-eth1 do I need to add my node name as the DHCP_HOSTNAME?
In /etc/sysconfig/network which gateway should I enter there,
I assume the external address? and should I have the gatewaydev
as eth1 or eth0?
I am a little confused with the domain name vs node name. Is
the node name my computer name or ma.charter.net? What would my
domain name be cptrnm.ma.charter.net?
