configuring linux for network
I set up win 95/98/nt computers for our network all the time and have no problems. We have a dhcp server which configures them automatically. I am trying to get a mandrake 6.0 (same as redhat more or less) box on the network. I don't care if it can see the other pc's, but I want it to be able to get on the internet and to telnet. I insalled a 3com 10baset card and installed linux from scratch and it deteced it, but I can't get on the internet or use telnet. I know the gateway and dns server addresses but don't know where to enter them...any suggestions????
This URL will help a little since you are using a Redhat variation.
The file /etc/init.d/network holds the IP, netmask etc. so you can edit that to conform. You may also wish to fool with the "hosts" series of files in the /etc directory.
Sorry this isn't of much help, I'm duking it out with Linux on my network right now and only stopped in to see if there was any additional info to gleen
Try getting a static, assigned IP/Name for the linux box... you might have some troubles using DHCP on linux if the network is using WINS.
Thanks for the advice. I will try that at work tommorow and let you know how it goes. I was planning on getting a static IP anyways, it is just that I have to fill out a form on the internet to get one assigned to me and I was going to start out with a dynamic one at first while I waited to get a static one assigned to me....
