Connecting my new Linux Box to my network.
Posted on 2002-07-08
I have a little network with 5 Window 2k computers. It is a peer-to-peer network. To connect to it the computer just has to belong to the same workgroup. There is not any Domain defined here. My router-gateway runs the DHCP service, so every computer in the network is setup to get is IP address from it. Now, I need to connect my Laptop to the network.
My Laptop run RedHat 6.1. It has a PCMCIA network card, which is properly working with Linux already. What do I have to do in order to connect this Linux computer to my network???
I already tried some configuration programs, but they ask for Hosts. I could not find any means to set this Linux computer to get its IP address automatically from the DHCP server(my router).
Thanks in advance!
