Using Windows XP as my internet gateway
I have many question regarding many things in Unix.
here is another.
I have a
Novell 5 server
Windows 2000 advanced server running active directory
Windows 2000 professional server running exchange 2000
Windows XP professional providing my internet gateway through 56K dial up modem (sad I know but my ADSL is awaiting to be installed)
Suse Linux 7.1
all those machines are running thru a 3Com superstack II switch 10/100
all my Windows machines are able to acces the internet via my XP box. is their a way of connecting my Linux machine to also use this XP box as my internet gateway.
I have dynamically assigned IP addresses from my ISP, but with static DNS server addresses.
2000 adv svr = 192.168.0.20 255.255.255.0
2000 pro svr = 192.168.0.30 255.255.255.0
XP pro = 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0
HP jetdirect EX plus 3 = 192.168.0.10 255.255.255.0
Linux 7.1 = 192.168.0.3 255.255.255.0
Novell 5 192.168.0.2 255.255.255.0
I'm able to ping all the relevent machine on my lan but am unable to ping DNS server at my ISP location.
Can this be done, if so help me.
Also I would like to be able to print to my HP Laserjet 6p thru my JetDirect box, which I can also ping from Linux.
Would it be better if I setup my Novell 5 server as my internet gateway, this will be fine however when I have my ADSL conection installed I won't be able to route this thru novell as it does not have a USB port ( sad also but novell does not need much power, so I'm running it on an old AT machine with a Intel P200 MMX )
