Linux Networking question
Posted on 1997-09-23
I would like to be able to have 4 computers at home with real ip's over a dialup to the internet.
server A is the ppp server on the internet.
server B is the ppp dialup on my local net.
I am not sure how to setup the netmasks or routing tables to correctly route the ip's of the machines connected to server B, or how to make server A route the additional ips to server B. How does the Server A tell its router that it is a router also, or is that done by the netmask?
From what I have been reading, machines connecting to server B must have a netmask of 255.255.255.248 and the gateway ip of server B. Is the gateway IP the IP of server B's modem or Netcard? How do you setup the routing on server B so that packets get routed fromt the PPP interface to the ethernet interface?
I have found alot of how to's and faq's for Masquerading and Proxy, but no comprehensive routing ones. If anyone could help me or point me to some more information I would greatly appreciate it.
