Equivalent of /etc/socks.conf for PCs

Equivalent of /etc/socks.conf for PCs

Post by Sudheer R. Vanga » Wed, 23 Aug 1995 04:00:00

Hi Everyone!!

My machine is behind the firewall!!

When I am running Netscape for X, I can have something like:


in my /etc/socks.conf

so that my browser can make a direct connection to a host on
network 100.101.55, which happens to be running httpd server,
and access web pages. At the same time, I can also access web
servers on the Internet.

How can I accomplish the above for a PC, which is also behind a
firewall?? Is there an equivalent of /etc/socks.conf for PCs, so that
it can make a direct http connection to certain httpd servers
which happen to be on different networks (not on Internet) but
are accessible from our local subnets.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanx in advance.

1. Looking for sample /etc/named.conf and etc/resolv.conf and /etc/hosts

Can someone send me some sample files for the latest version of the named




I am having some trouble understanding how to configure my new RH 6.2

My setup is as follows:

I have a DSL modem connected to a hardware router.  I have an external IP
number and 192.168.1.X as ip's for my LAN running TCP/IP.  The linux server
is at local ip

I want to run my own mail server and name server for HTTP and FTP access.

If I run NSLOOKUP, it reports that it cannot find a server name address for (non-existent host/domain)
and for my external IP (no response from server)

I think if I can see some sample files set up correctly, that I can
reconfigure my system to work correctly.

Or - better yet, if someone can walk me throught this setup I would be
forever greatful!!!
