I wish to set up a private LAN for Testing CGI scripts locally.
I have been successful in getting APACHE working on my LINUX server and can view the test page by simply typing:
in the location browser (infoserve is my server name)
I now wish to access this page over my LAN using a Win98 Machine. I am using
Netscape Navigator 4.6 and have set it up with a "Direct Connection to the internet" under Edit -> Preferences -> advanced -> Proxies.
Note: I also use this PC with a dial up connection for general browsing of the internet.
I have set up my Linux machine as a router with the following details
when I run the command: netstat -r
Dest Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface
10.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 40 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 40 0 0 lo
default infoserve.com 0.0.0.0 UG 40 0 0 eth0
My Linux Server has the IP ADDRESS 10.0.0.1 and is called infoserve.com, alias = infoserve
I have also set up my TCP/IP connection within windows to use this gateway and DNS Server
PROBLEM: I can't see the test page from my win98 PC. I try the following URL's
I'm not sure if I am approaching this the correct way, maybe I should be using a Proxy Server
Any help would be great,
