I havea WIN98SE PC sitting 1ft from a SUSE 7.3. LINUX WRKSTATION at my Desk. Can I plug 1ea 3ft RJ45 Ethernet Cable into the respective NIC Cards and LINK/CONNECT/ATTACH the 2 machines?
Locally Develope & Test WEBSITE on PC, load/publish INDEX.HTML FILE to a TEST APACHE WEB SERVER on SUSE WRKSTN.
1st, I know ea NIC CARD has to be configured and SAMBA Service enabled on the SUSE WRKSTN.
2nd, I only have a 9600 BAUD DIAL UP Connection on the SUSE WRKSTN. My primary requirements is to connect both Computers and does not entail INTERNET SERVICE thru an ISP.
1 - Will a straight thru ethernet cable work or do I need a Ethernet Cross-Connect cable? If so where do I get it?
2 - Specifically, what IP addresses, do I use and what procedures/files in LINUX do I use to accomplish this.
All specific information and any general guidance will be gratefully aprreciated
