I have a few questions about ip masquerading, and which ip addresses should be used.
I am looking through the Linux IP Masq mini HOWTO, and I don't really understand what the ip addresses should be set as. Although you obviously need to have a net connection (and registered IP address) to use this, and it should be on the linux box, I was wondering what should be set where. The HOWTO says to set the ip address of the linux box to 192.168.1.1... but if that is the ip address, how can it get on the net. My assigned ip should be 126.96.36.199.
In short, fill in these blanks: I put in what I have currently, which does not work.
Things to know:
Assigned ip: 188.8.131.52
Assigned gateway: 184.108.40.206
Assigned DNS: 220.127.116.11
Linux ip: <18.104.22.168>
Linux gateway: <22.214.171.124>
Linux DNS: <126.96.36.199>
Win95 box ip: <192.168.1.2>
Win95 box gateway: <188.8.131.52>
Win95 box DNS: <184.108.40.206>
Thats what I have now... is that incorrect? I cant ping the linux box.
