How to config my Linux machine to be my proxy etc.
Posted on 2000-04-22
I got a machine on which I installed RedHat 6.1, and I want it to act as a proxy server, but haven't the slightest clue as to how to do this, and I know next to nothing about UNIX/Linux.
(lol though I do know 'pico', nice little editor which is about the only thing I understand) :)
I got my network card to work, and when pinging to and from my machine all went fine, and when entering its IP address in a browser it displays the default web page... but... how can I tell it to act as a proxy server, so that I can hook up my cable modem to my Linux machine instead of to a seperate (Windoze) proxy server...
And how can I connect from a Windoze PC to my Linux machine, and the other way around, from my Linux machine to a Windoze PC (someone mentioned "smbmount" when I asked someone else before). (over a LAN beats the heck out of copying everything on floppies... specially when things get bigger in size)
Well that's about all I can think of for now....
(I know, I'm probably better off buying a book and learning about Linux) :)
And as you might have noticed, this is not the notorious CJ_S, but mgdPaul who has run out of points and needs to ask a big question :)
Thanks a whole lot in advance,
