how to integrate redhat enterprise & windows 2000 server for home network

Im quite new to redhat/linux. Im in the process of creating a network at home with 2 computers. One contains windows 2000 server, which also contains a dsl connection. The second I have installed redhat enterprise. I have a crossover cable which connects both computers. My next step is that I want to be able to share files between both comps & also the internet connection. I'm trying to use Internet Connection Sharing to allow redhat to use win2000 server internet connection. When I check the box next to "Enable Internet Connection Sharing for this connection" and press "OK" to share my connection through the NIC it assigns automatically the IP address of 192.168.0.1. To get my other computer up and working tutorials which I have read say that I must configure it to obtain an IP address automatically. Would it still work if I assigned a static address in redhat? And can I change the IP address to the first NIC from 192.168.0.1 to lets say 192.168.0.10?

Thank you all for your time

If you're set on using Windows ICS then you need to do

When you install redhat you'll probably get an option to
a) obtain an ip address dynamically
b) set the settnigs yourself

You should setting the settings on the redhat box to be 192.168.0.2 and gateway address of 192.168.0.1 (which is the windows machine)

It's a feature of windows ICS that the IP address of the sharing machine must be 192.168.0.1, so no you can't change it. It's a quick and dirty way of sharing the connection, and not one you would use for long IMO, especially as you've gone to all the trouble of installing windows 2000 server (not a great idea IMO for home use, as a lot of AV software won't install on server2000)

If ICS isn't really what you want to do then, as you have Windows 2000 Server, you can install the DHCP + DNS + Routing component, Set the DHCP to serve addresses (in which case you can setup your redhat with a dynamically assigned address), and use the routing component to route traffic through your DSL.


I have no java certifications. This makes me a bad programmer. Ignore my post.
