How do I set up my Networking ? Primary DNS Secondary DNS Tertiary DNS ???
Posted on 2003-03-17
I had a RHL7.3 installed on my Machine which was connected on LAN and I got RHL8.0 Aquamarine PCquest version in that there was no Upgrade option So What I did was I selected the custom option and then I selected the required packages but at that time when it detected my ethernet card. I didnt knew what to do So I accepted the defaults i.e get IP address from a DNS server and started the installation.
After that When I restarted the machine it was not able to bring up the ethernet interface.
I finally came to knew that I had to add my IP address But I didnt knew what it was .
Then I went to my Windows OS and from the Networking configuration I knew about these things Now I have the following things
I have my IP address, GateWay Address, Host name , Domain Name, And a DNS server name, These i got from DNS Configuration in Network properties of my ethernet adapter.
But the problem is where do I load these values in Linux.
Someone told me to enter them in K-Menu-> System SEttings-> Network
Here I found DNS but there it was a different one.
It was asking for Primary DNS Secondary DNS and Tertiarry DNS.
What are these things I dont know and What am I supposed to do with these.
Is there a proper guide for Networking available on the Net which has all the different confiuguration available.
So any help in this regard would be appreciated.
