I have computer A, linux box, with samba, and it shares internet with computer B. If I try to disconnect computer B and connect laptop C, Laptop C can't get connection with the internet.
how is that possible? Do I have to change something in some configfiles?
*edit: I also get the following messages in kernel.log when I restart my adsl-connection: Nectar: eth0: no IPv6 routers present
(same for eth1)
I understand only comp A runs Arch.
Do you have your laptop properly configured? Proper gateway set etc.?
Maybe you're running dhcp on your server and/or you allow only specific MACs (or IPs) to connect to the Internet.
Your description is somewhat enigmatic, please brief us with more details :-)
yes I'm sorry for that. My laptop is configured the same as computer B. (both running windows) So gateway etc. is correct on both computers. I just tried to ping www.some-site.com and that didn't work.
An external IP could be pinged, so I guess there has to be a misconfiguration of DNS settings?
what the hell... everything works just fine now... I guess there was a temporary downtime on the nameservers of my ISP. :?
You want a nice tip?
Install dhcp on your gateway, and let your clients be assigned automatic.
