    what kind of post is this? what do you expect? a networking course for free where you can learn in 1hr how TCP/IP works?

    Actually, I know how TCP/IP works. I was wondering about the files to edit. Such as the network interfaces. If you don't want to help, don't reply.

    Hello skeasor,

    After loading the driver for my NIC with modconf I set up networking on my potato box by following the instructions on http://www.burdell.org/resnet/debian.html.
    Unfortunately this page doesn't exist any more but there was a cached version at google - I put it up on my page http://www.stereolyzer.net/burdell-resnet-debian.html.

    This is not a full featured init script with start/stop ... but I learned a lot from it.

    If you want I can send you my /etc/init.d/network and /etc/network/interfaces - these should be ready to do their work after you apply your settings.

    HTH

    Thanks. However, the urls that you gave me were incorrect and didn't load. Maybe you typed your url incorrectly. You could send your networking files to me so I could look at them. That would help out a lot.

    oops the trailing . makes the url corrupt. Try http://www.stereolyzer.net/burdell-resnet-debian.html

    This is the my interface definition

    # /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file

    # for ifup(8), ifdown(8)

    # The loopback interface
    iface lo inet loopback
    name Loopback: virtual interface

    # eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    address 192.168.170.114
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    broadcast 192.168.170.255
    gateway 192.168.170.11


    The /etc/init.d/networking should work without modifications as far as I can remember.

    So this setup will also work even if I have a modem connection and my debian system will be the server?

    No.
    Unfortunately I can't give you any advice on that.
    The debian-firewall list would maybe a place to look for information. Maybe this message could be a starting point.

    Good luck,
    Robert

    what card?


    Do a google search for you cardname+linux moudles. and load the correct module with "modprobe modulename". Most linux come with netconfig. It will promt you for info and set-up your eth0 interface. Edit resolv.conf and add you DNS info and you should be up and running. if you have problem at this point check the routing table with "netstat -rn" and make sure a defualt gateway is there for you interface.
    good luck
