Consider me a dumbass and a linux newbie.
I want to setup linux as a router and my situation is like this drawing:
windows xp linux box (redhat 7.3)
1 NIC card <---cross cable---> eth1
eth0---straight cable--->CABLE MODEM
- eth0 which is connected to cable modem automatically gets ip when
redhat boots up ( i am able to access internet on linux box)
- eth1 doesnt, i used : "ifconfig eth1 up" and it got a local ip
starting with 192.x.x.x
How do I route things here so that I can use internet from windows too?
I want to be able to access internet from both machines. Will some
knowledgeable person show me the ropes. IF you could outline the
steps/commands and what have you it would be excellant. Specific
commands and explanations is what i am looking for. Thanks in advance
for the help.
