shared internet - cant ping (insert confusion)
Ive recently installed RH 7.3 one one of our two home computers. Much to the dismay of my parnter i havent been able to get shared internet working. I dont know much about linux and am getting a little confused with the vast config files etc.
If i tell you what i want can you help? For now i just want to be able to share the servers net connection with the client. The whole domainname and config in linux is getting me a bit sidetracked too. I dont really care what it is as long as they are connected to a workgroup Mythical.
Where im at right now is, the server can use the internet fine with ppp0, and can ping the client by name and ip.
The client cant access the internet, can ping the server by ip, but cant ping it by name.
Running Redhat 7.3
Uses: Ethernet card (eth0) for network and modem (ppp0) for dialup internet
Internal IP: 192.168.0.1
Uses: Ethernet card for network
Internal IP: 192.168.0.2
Im sure there'll be more you need me to tell you. If we assume no other settings have been made, (the ones i made have probably been wrong) can you point me along from here?
Hope you can help before the mrs screws my neck! :(
