Ok so I have two network cards in my Debian machine and I have installed the bridge-utils package and am using the brctl to add a bridge then I add the two network cards to the bridge but that is as far as I can get.
One of the network cards is using the main cable line while the other is using a crossover cable to connect to a Windows XP laptop (to provide the laptop with internet).
Do I need to change any routing table settings or what? I am lost because as soon as I create the bridge everything stops working, but I was able to ping the Debian machine laptop card from the laptop..
eth0 (main card connect to net):
eth1(card connected by crossover cable to laptop):
Default gateway: (should I use 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52?)
Default gateway: 192.168.1.100
What is next? Are my IP's and default gateways correct?
Wow I thought someone would know this..
I think first you should understand the concepts of Subletting, Default gateway and IP packet Routing.
Then this is not a big deal for you.
So pretty much this forum is a bunch of n00bs?
