building an IPX < -- > IP gateway/firewall

Post by Thumper » Wed, 17 Jan 1996 04:00:00

I've got a client who has a large Novell LAN and a smaller TCP/IP lan (which
is connected to the internet).  Trying to get the various Novell machines to
run Novell and TCP/IP just hasn't worked out.

What I'd like to do is build a forewall between our TCP/IP lan and the
Novell lan, and have the linux box do the IP -> IPX conversion.

The HOWTO's don't specifically address this subject, and I'm not expert
enough to be sure if this will work before attempting it.

I have a 10 GB UDMA IDE drive formatted with Windows.  The first partition
is FAT32, and the second is NTFS.  I can successfully mount the first, but
not the second.  Any ideas?

Suse 7.2 on i86
the drive is mounted on /dev/hdc, and I CAN see hda1, but not hda2
