    Question Networking caldera

    Hellooooz,

    I have a problem here.

    Well decided to install linux (Caldera openlinux 2.4) on one of the machines in the office (Compaq presario 2255), and it installed successfully.

    Now i wanted to configure the network, but its not working.

    I need help.

    I have a ACCTON ethernet card which the system detected (it looks like).
    I have all the information like the Ips and the gateway and DNS and.......


    used webmin to do it and failed.

    Am looking forward to ur help.

    Thanx in advance,

    Cheers

    Your first problem is supporting SCO software.

    I have all the information like the Ips and the gateway and DNS and.......
    Does that mean that your card has an IP Adress or you know the IP that you need to assign to it? What problems are you having exactly? The more specific you are, the better we can try to assist you.

    I hI ment that i know that IP adress that i should assign to this machine.

    The problem is that am entering the information needed but it doesnt work
    i try to browse but it gives an error message (for example for www.yahoo.com it say: the server www.yahoo.com could not be found).

    I want to also know the configuration files that i should deal with ( and if i can do it through the command line.

    I basically deicided to do this (installing linux on the machine) for learning purpos and also to see how good linux is and if i can switch to it.

    will be waiting for your replies.

    Cheers

    look for a file called ifcfg-eth0
    it is in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/

    use "locate ifcfg-eth0" to find it if nescessary.

    That is the file that you will need to edit in order to set the IP manually.

    it should look something like this....

    DEVICE=eth0
    USERCTL=no
    ONBOOT=yes
    BOOTPROTO=none
    BROADCAST=192.168.1.255
    NETWORK=192.168.1.0
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    IPADDR=192.168.1.5

    You will also need to mess with

    /etc/sysconfig/network

    to set other needed settings... it should resemble

    NETWORKING=yes
    HOSTNAME=name.host.net
    FORWARD_IPV4=yes
    GATEWAYDEV=
    GATEWAY=192.168.1.254
