hi all
iam using windows2000 server for sharing inernet in the lan. i have to place a new pc only for browsing internet in the n/w but don t have any free port in my switch. so i installed a new n/w card in the 2000server machine. but i can share internet only for one n/w card in 2000server. so i thought of changing my 2000server to RH9 and configuring squid. can i share the internet among all the systems tru squid?

regards

Yes, you could use squid or you could set up a NAT'ing firewall on the Linux box for general Internet sharing. Squid is a proxy which means that it only will allow those protocols that it knows about, web, ftp, etc. A firewall does care what protocol the client uses and thus allows POP, IMAP, SMTP, etc. And example of a firewall rule set for a RedHat box can be seen at http://www.entrophy-free.net/tools/iptables-gw

to be able to share the net the way you described you have to
- setup nating so that all clients share the same real IP
- setup squid to share the web content
squid out of the box will work and will only need configuration to setup permissions
