Getting internet shareing working with Mandrake and Win98
Posted on 2004-03-25
I have two computers conected by crossover ethernet cable. My main computer has two network cards, one for cable modem, second for conection between computers. When my master computer is running XP and my client is running 98 the network works fine, file shareing and internet shareing.
I just installed Mandrake Linux 9.2 on the master as a dual boot. But am unable to configure it to alow for internet shareing nor file shareing. The client cannot connect to any web site. But the master (Mandrake Linux) can always access the internet.
I tryed to use DrakeConnect and DrakeGw to set things up.
eth0 is connected to the client and should be 192.168.0.1
eth1 is my internet conection (cable) using dhcp
They are both reported to be up and running in the DrakeConnect controll pannel.
In DrakeGw I chose to enable Internet shareing, but after enable, and next, the window closed and there were no other steps.
I can ping the client 192.168.0.162 with 0% loss
Client can ping master 192.168.0.1 and there is 0% loss, a nice conection.
winipcfg on the 98 machine gives satisfying results:
default gateway: 192.168.0.1
ipconfig on Mandrake (master) produces a command not found.
I viewed the services list and could not find any dns, but did find nfs, netfs and network are all running and start on boot.
My host file on Mandrake only contains localhost 127.0.0.1
Same with 98 machine. Only localhost
I need help to get internet shareing and file shareing working in Mandrake linux so when I am in linux my mom can use her computer just about the same as she would when i am in xp.
Please help me configure it to work.
