Can anyone help?
I have 2 PC's -
PC1 is my main PC and is running Win2k, has a ADSL connection via modem and an Ethernet card.
PC2 is running RedHat Linux 7.2 and has an Ethernet card.
I have set up the IP address for PC1 as 10.0.0.3 and for PC2 as 10.0.0.2.
I can ping between the PC's no trouble.
I want to be able to do two things -
1. Set up Internet sharing ie use the Linux box to access the Internet through the connection on the Win2K box
2. Have the Linux box serve as a web server - ie be able to access it from the Win2k box via a browser - http://linux_box_IP/myfiles.html
I have option 2 working great.
The problem is with option 1.
This is what is happening -
If I set up the Network connection for the ADSL modem to 'share' using the LAN connection (set up for the Win2k/Linux LAN) It resets the IP of the LAN to 192.168.0.1.
If I then try to ping the Linux box - I get time out errors. I also cannot ping 192.168.0.1 from the Linux box.
I am totally stuck. Does anyone know how to set this up, or know a link where this is documented?
