Debian to Windows via Eth0? (lengthy Link included.
I read through this article trying to set up my ethernet card to talk to my Win2k box so I can use internet and move and see files and what not.
I think the section 10.2.1 & 10.2.2 are what I need to set it up but I dont quite get the whole gateway, ipaddress, broadcast thing. I get a little confused as well about which computer they are refering to. In my case the win2k I think is the host (and established computer) and the connection to the net. I am trying to connect my Debian box to the Win2k box via the ethernet cards. It has an IP and subnet mask set at
with no gateway or DNS (???) numbers selected.
:?: First do I need to add those numbers for gateway or DNS on the windows box? Suggestions as to what I should add?
:?: Second, I think I can see how to properly change the entries on the Debian box via link instructions, but am not sure what I need. Are those the entries of the linux box or the windows box I am connecting to? Suggestions?
:?: What does that gateway number DO??? Also, do I need such a number on the linux box?
:?: What is that broadcast number for and do?
:?: What does the DNS number refer to or do?
