Windows 2000 internet access through a LAN
Posted on 2000-05-15
I've set up a small network of computers connected via ethernet and running the TCP/IP protocol. One machine on the network is the gateway to the internet.
IP addresses are assigned from the private block of addresses (192.168.X.X) and each machine is assigned a fixed IP address locally (no automatic/dynamic IP address assignment of any sort).
I need to add a Windows 2000 machine to the network. I tried to configure the connection in the usual way from the network settings menu without success: I can't get the machine to talk to any other machine on the network.
This machine is configured to dual-boot Windows 2000 or SuSE Linux 6.1. When running Linux the same machine networks perfectly so it's not a hardware or cable problem.
Can anyone help?
