1. Can someone answer some question on setting up a small home lan and dialup internet access
I have a few questions for those in the know on Solaris 2.6 x86. I
have been trying to setup a small home base lan and dialup internet
access. The lan is peer-to-peer with two other win95 machines.
1) If I use an ip address like 192.168.0.1 for my main host named
'gateway' and 126.96.36.199 for my notebook named 'thinkpad', 192.168.0.3
for my other workstation named 'kidsroom' how do I setup a dynamically
assigned ip address for the main host 'gateway' on the dialup side?
2) Does my main host machine have to be named the smae as my login
name I use for my dialup internet access?
3) How do I use my host file to list the other peer-to-peer clients
and still have DNS for the internet?
4) Why does my modem dial when the system is booting up, even before I
log into the system?
5) Why does the modem dial but then either looses the connect for
fails to log into my internet provider?
6) Is there a way to find out what chat script I should use for
7) Where do I place my logiun name and password for my ISP?
8) Because I am trying to use a small lan, will the system send the
login name I use for the lan to my ISP, which is different than my ISP
I have read a lot of the messages here and learn quite a bit, but also
manage to get quite confused in other areas. I went to stokely.com and
the same happen there. Is there a file or program that will configure
these things, prompt for settings, then edit the necessary files?
Why does SUN claim to be the network computer company, but make it so
hard to configure a workstation for dialup internet access? I mean how
many home computers out there have hayes compatable modems on com2?
Probably most of them.
I realize they offer their services to corporations that employ
brilliant network administators, but as a end user I find it very
frustrating to setup their products. I might sound dumb here so bare
with me, but one would think if they are really trying to gain market
share against Microsoft, one would think they could at lease make the
PPP interface easy to setup. I think this is why OS/2 never caught on
as a main stream OS, it was to hard to setup devices. Microsoft makes
it easy, granted they aren't dealing with the complexities of scaling
and power SUN and other UNIX OS companies tackle. I bet this is the
main reason WIN NT is gaining market share, the interfaces make it
more appealing than the cryptic commands found in Solaris.
