    Talking Linux/XP Network&DSL problems - Need asst

    Hi All,

    Long ago, really long ago, I used Debian for a dial up connection to the Inet. I have Unbutu installed on a spare machine trying to network it to XP Pro Media that has DSL installed. I want to use the DSL on Linux too. I think I may have to do this with a router. As far as I Can tell I have Linux network protocols set properly. Unbutu as a window in Linux for just about everything. It's about the closest thing to ms windows as Linux may come, I think.

    I have been unable to get XP Pro to recognize my Linux box and vice vers. Can anyone tell if there is a protocol in XP Pro networking for linux. I have TCPIP and IPX Netbios installed on a windows client setting. I am using 10/100 Nics through a hub connected to my DSL. My DSL uses a static Ip address and works okay to XPPro using the HUB. Additionally, I cannot get Linux to recognize the shared Internet connection for XP Pro. I know enough about Linux to be dangerous with it, but have a good handle on XP protocol. I was trying to network Linux to the Windows box using TCPIP. I have my XP files shared but Linux tells me it cannot determine the permissions on c: (which is my windows box). I am still tinkering but if anyone reading this can throw out any hints that may assist me, you can bet they will be appreciated. I am uncertain whether Linux will operate with this DSL connection I have from Cavalier Telephone.

    debugger Knows enought about Linux to foul up the works.

    hello,
    okay - as i understand your post you wish to have your MS Windows XP box be a gateway for the Linux box. I thought MS Windows had some thing like internet connection sharing, while i have no MS Windows here i can not really say how to have Linux see the MS Windows box as a gateway...

    i think this will help ->
    http://www.homenethelp.com/ics/ics-install-sxp.asp i would use the Macintosh instructions and modify for Linux.

    but of course i would use Linux as the gateway for all of them

    Smile I'm a no go for Unbuntu/xp pro - trying another linux vers.

    Well, I guess I will shelve Unbutu Linux. I connected my dsl direct to Unbutu, set the network Ip address and gateway for the DSL connection, loaded up Samba for the communications. What happened ----Nothing. Unbutu apparently is not capable of handling the connection from my DSL modem. Think I will try another version of Linux. I know Debian, some, years ago did okay with a dial-up connection. I wonder whether Debian will accept my DSL connect. Maybe more on this later.

    Debugger -- said it.

    hello,
    DSL uses PPPoE or DHCP as far as I am aware - this is supported quite nicely by ubuntu

    Cool Found problem but not resolution

    Found out the problem with PPP0E is it will not recognize my static IP connection to DSL. But I don't know what to use with the Static IP to get my DSL to recognize it.

    Debugger

    PS: Last time I used Linux, there was not DSL, only dial-up. Now DSL is all new for configuration purposes for my static IP address.

    Learning as I go

    Okay, this is it. The problem I have can be resolved using a router. The hub could not do the job, or i could not configure it correctly. Either way, router is the solution to my problem. I found the answer on the Internet about Static Ip addresses and linux. Router Router Router. He he he.

    The debugger said it loud.
