Bridge two local networks
Posted on 2004-10-10
I've two local (Windows) networks. One wireless, including internet ADSL access using NAT. The other wired.
Is the following possible?...
I've a linux box (Fedora2) with an ethernet card and a wireless card. I've finally got the wireless to talk to the current wireless network.
I'd like to
1) Have the linux box share various directories via SAMBA to both windows networks
2) Have the linux box serve a printer to both windows networks.
3) Act as a (bridge ? or router? ) to let the wireless network see the internet
4) Act as a bridge/router to let the two windows networks see each other i.e. so I can share files between the two windows networks.
I'm presuming I can manage to sort out (1) and (2) (or there will be more Qs later!)
Can I do (3) and/or (4), and if so, could you start by pointing me in the right direction, please.
Additional Qs can be opened if this spawns too many other issues...
