I need to know if the following is possible, and if so how?
I currently have a small NetWare 4.11 LAN running IPX/SPX and Win98 clients running Novell's Client 32 to connect. I'd like to connect a Linux box (RH 6.0) with 2 NICs to the LAN. One NIC configured with an IPX address, the other with a IP address. Connect the IP NIC to a router which is connected to a frame relay circuit from a local ISP.
On the Linux box I'd like to run Apache for our website. And also Oracle Web Application Server; which will query an Oracle 8 DB on the NetWare Server.
My initial question: What is necessary on the Linux box for my LAN workstations to connect to the Internet? Can Linux perform IPX-IP translation/"routing"? I do not wish to assign IP addresses on the LAN if it can be avoided.
Thank you for your input
