    Redhat Networking

    Hey!
    Just wondering, how would i go about to connect and internet share two computers, one running rehat linux, and the other running windows xp. I find it impossible to do it with a xp to xp box, so I'm now trying a linux to xp box.
    Thanks.


    BTW, i was gonna do a seprate thread for this but, how do you people pronounce linux? Do you pronounce it LEE-NUX (said fast) or LIE-NUX or something else?

    function beginError(bsod) {
    return true; }
    onLoad.windows = beginError;

    Well I'm not exactly an expert at networking-no less at Linux, but I believe you need to configure Samba to network it....I used to have a link to a really great web site which has excellent tutorials on doing this-I'll see if I can find it for you....I believe it's pronounced just like you see it.....it was named after the infamous man who started it all-Linus Torvald (don't think his last name is spelled right, but that's him).........

    I think when you install linux (redhat at least), when its testing your soundcard, it has a sound clip of Linus saying how he pronounces linux.

    Thanks. But... i believe Samba is for linux - windows file/print sharing. I don't think it has anything to do with internet sharing.

    When i look at Linux, i see both pronounciations that i mentioned before. i'm lost...

    return true; }
    onLoad.windows = beginError;

    To setup linux as a router because thats really what you are asking... you need to use ip masquerading and under the properties for the network device in XP , you need to specify the linux box as the gateway.
    You can visit the link below for a more in depth explanation

    here is how.

    Ok here is how.

    Use redhat 7.2 and windows xp

    First install redhat with router and SAMBA functions (You may need to select individual modules in the installation)
    then I suggest you use the KDE windows manager interface.

    Next click the >>K<< then goto System.. Select Network Configuration.> Setup your router settings.. Then configure your samba.. (I suggest leaving samba localhost@localhost) for domain

    now boot konqueror and type smb://(Computer Name of the XP box)


    walla
