I am not sure if this is the correct forum for this question, but I know someone here can help me because you are all SMARTIES!
I am trying to network my linux redhat 8.0 web server to my WindowsME development computer. I have the network set up but I am not sure how to make them "see" one another.
This is what I have done:
I assigned an IP to my linux machine (10.100.1.2) and a netmask (???) (255.255.255.0)
I connected the linux machine to the hub.
I have a cable modem internet connection, so I have the cable modem going IN to the hub and it is being distributed to the WindowsME machine via the hub. (I do not need to provide internet connectivity to the linux machine, it is only a development server)
The WindowsME machine is set to automatically detect it's IP address because of the cable internet connection. (My ISP set it up, I am not sure how all that works)
Does the WindowsME machine need to have a permanent IP address for my network to work? How can I make the WinME machine "see" the linux server.
All I need is the ability to SSH the linux server from the WinME computer and I will be happy...
Can someone help me?
