Thanks for the advice Alderon, I stand corrected. I just experimented with this, and it does not look like I needed NAT on ETH00 (my LAN connection).
I’d lake to put some of this into a Guide for new users, but I don’t have the networking know-how. Many, myself included, seem to using an outdated and incorrect guide that says to bridge the LAN and WAN adapters. I got passed that by experimenting.
Is there a downside to enabling NAT on both WAN and LAN adapters?
Well, I bridged the Wireless and 1GB adapters and that seems to do what I want it to. I’m not sure if this is the best way but it is what I will do for now.
Thanks for the reply ppalias, thats what I thought. But, will forwarding another set of ports for my friend work? I’m not sure that it will since it is asking for specific ports to be opened.
Duh, Thanks Alot JC. I was googling “SSH” and getting alot of sites on the tech behind SSH, not on how to use it.
Of course, I then discovered I had not ‘saved’ when I added by one network to the ‘enable ssh’ windows, so problem solved.
I must admit I don’t know how to use any of these. After Enabling SSH on the local wired interface. I don’t know what to do. Telnet (IP) still doesn’t work: Connection refused. I don’t know how to use SSH and launching Putty just gives me a black windows with a cursor, and I can’t enter anything. Can anyone give me a walk through or point me in the right direction?
sorry for the delay, but another computer broke and had to be replaced.
e1iminator, I’m confused by this last post. When I try to set up eth1ð0 with 192.168.0.1/24 and 192.168.0.10/24 respectively, it reports they overlap. 192.168.0.1/24 and 184.108.40.206/24 don’t. Which is correct?
Thanks e1iminator, I setup ETH0 as a DHCP client, created an IP address of 220.127.116.11/24 on ETH1 and created a DHCP server on that subnet, and then created an IP of 192.168.0.10/24 on ETH2 and created a DHCP server on that subnet and presto! success.
Now, I have no idea WHY this works, its outside my specialty. I thought the bridging was needed or the different interfaces wouldn’t talk to each other.
Now, lets say I have two desktops connected via a switch to ETH01. I would expect that both computers can locate each other and share files like on a local network. Will this also be true with a notebook connected to ETH02 and a desktop on ETH01?
Thanks Eliminator, but I think I need a more complete walk through. I have suceeded in giveing ETH02 (the wireless interface) an IP and making it a DHCP server, OR ETH01 (the LAN connection) a DHCP server, but when I bridge them with ETH0 everything stops working.
