How to set up internet access in Fedora
Posted on 2009-04-08
I have just been given a couple of PC's and thought I might set one up as a linux box to run test web sites and databases etc, purely for development. However being a .net developer, I don't know the first thing about linux.
I downloaded Fedora 10 and it has installed and I have set up a static IP address, with the same gateway as the Windows PC's on my network and I can get websites running on my network, but I cannot access the internet on the Linux box.
I have a feeling that this maybe something to do with the DNS settings, which originally I had set the same as the Windows PC's, but this did not work, I then changed them to the DNS settings given to me by my ISP, again with no joy.
Any help gratefully received.
