Could anybody please direct me to any info on configuring my Solaris 8 for a
Thanks in advance
1. Determine what your interface is called ("ifconfig -a"). Let's
say you find that it's elxl0.
2. "cp /dev/null /etc/hostname.elxl0"
3. "cp /dev/null /etc/dhcp.elxl0"

The file /etc/hostname.elxl0 (or similar) needs to be empty. If youQuote:>Why not use the touch command to create the files instead of the cp
Thus it's easier to tell people to use the "cp" command because there
are cases in which it will work but the other won't.
I have 2 network cards and 1 modem in a Linux Box with RH6.
My cable modem uses the modem to start a PPP session, and the network card
is then hooked up to the VPN of the ISP.
I would like to setup a IP Masquraded Firewall to hook some of my other
behind the firewall.
I cannot find a HOW-TO to setup the Linux box using this type of Cable
have only found 2 way cable modems. Can someone point me it the right
My problem is that I don't know how to get Linux connected, then also, how
do I configure
ipchains or ipfwadm to use the correct rule set. Do I do the modem or the
network card. The
network card has a static IP of 10.0.0.1 which is usally used for VPNs. My
is of corse not supporting Linux, so I have to do it myself. The PPP dialup
uses DHCP to
assign my address so I have dhcp setup.
Thanks in advance..
