moving laptop between networks
Posted on 1999-07-15
i have a laptop with Redhat 6.0 installed and it is connected to my network at home (this all works fine so far)
i take my laptop to client sites, such as the one where i am currently contracting and often need to connect to their network.
Given that i have all the relevant information about their network such as ip addresses, netmasks, network names, etc.
what is the recommended way to configure my laptop so that i can switch it on and boot into the right choice for the network that i am connected to?
basically i don't want to have to edit the
and probably some other files every time i change network
but would instead like to set up a profile for each network that i connect to.
plus can you advise on what services that i should be sure to turn off before connecting to their network so that i don't interfere with their network.
So far the only documentation specific to this problem that I can find is some old information on a program called netenv (plus loads of general info such as NAGs HOWTOs etc)
Any help would be appreciated,
