Linux & WinGate
Posted on 1999-07-16
I'm using WinGate 2.1d on the computer with the dial-up connection (it is not my computer so that is why I can't put linux on it as well) I want to be able to access the internet using the standard linux tools (eg. ping, telnet, etc.)
Now, I do have Netscape working using the WinGate proxies. I want to be able to set up linux (on my computer) to make it seem like it has a permanent connection to the internet, so I can use programs that do not have proxy settings, eg ICQ.
Now I know of two ways to get this done, but I don't know how to go about it:
1. Set up linux and the Windows PC (Win95B OSR2) so the windows PC is acting as a gateway, and I set the gateway options on the linux machine. I have tried this but I can't ping anything outside of the local network - I can ping the IP address of the PPP connection, but nothing on the internet. This would be my perferred option.
2. Set up on the linux machine a socks client and then connect the socks client to the WinGate socks proxy. I have tried using a socks package (NEC socsk5) but it doesn't even seem to work at all. I'm not sure if I have set it up properly? HELP?
Here is my network configuration:
Internal network 192.168.0.*
Internal subnet 255.255.255.0
ISP DNS Server 220.127.116.11
WinGate IP 192.168.0.3
My IP 192.168.0.1
anything else you need just ask me
NOTE: I know all works well with WinGate as when I run Windows it works well.
