Manual DHCP configuration in Slackware 10
Hey all u Nix gods/godesses 8) ,
(noob to this forum)
I have been working on sum practice Network admin tasks in Nix but have come to a grinding halt on this one.
I am seemingly unable to 'hack' the dhcp config file to a use configuration for only my machine soon to be 2 more. Although after countless guesses based on the man page template and ip addressing knowledge I already posses (very little) plus zillions of searches on google, I thought I might pray to the Nix gods/esses and hope for an answer :) .
I am pretty much half way to Nix veterancy IMHO others may say otherwise.
Thanks guys and gals I did it
Cheers for all the help peeps
You'll make a nix god out of me yet :D :D.
After much sleep deprivation I finally did it by using one of the samples in the help pdfs of a samba tar ball. All is good now but...
I go to check my mail after dialing the internet and I find that sylpheed claws (and probably anything else I could of used) was attempting to connect to the bt openworld mail server through my newly configured dhcp server.
I didnt even set it up as a gateway. Surely there's a hack to get round this. I dont have ADSL yet :-( :cry: I need ppp0 to be used right now.
For now I am set to local loopback. :x
