Need Reply EXTREMELY Fast
I know this isnt in the right forum, but this is somewhat of an emergency. Neg away if you must. Its networking and it can be construed to deal with security ;)
OS - Slackware9
Regular compatible ethernet card.
With a regular ethernet card, that is compatible with linux.. should i have any trouble clearing my netconfig and connecting to a t1 network at a college? I have been behind a NAT router with an assigned static internal address. I was also wondering if the before mentioned would cause problems if i dont setup dhcp to allow me to get a new ip from the T1 network, or if that even mattered. I have no clue how t1 networks work, as i have never read much about them or know much about their topology. I mean, i realise how easy it is in windows, but i was wondering if:
[a] there was anything special i need to do
[b] if Slack9 even works with t1?
[c] Anything else you need to tell me before i leave?
I will be gone to a university for 18 days, and i don't have a spare windowscd... So im stuck with linux if i want an OS, (which i would rather be stuck with linux anyday, as long as i have net access)
I need an answer before around 30 minutes from now. If you dont reply before then, dont worry about it. it is now 1:21 AM
I am in GMT -6
Ill give until 2 am, but i have to pack up this computer quickly, for i am leaving early on in the morning and this needs to go first.
(You can see that im kinda panicky but i forgot to think about it, im sure its compatible. But i couldnt go 18 days without net access to save my life.)
Thanks in advance for prompt replies. i will be bumping this for 30 minutes.
