Linux Tips & Tricks
managed to get Corel Linux doing both functions at the same time
(IPmasq and DHCPd), however, it wasn't using the IPmasq package that
comes installs with the Corel Update utility. I ended up having to
manually add several lines to the network file in the Init.d
directory. I will put up a guide on how to do this as soon as I get
ICQ working through the firewall. Everything else I've tested works fine.
there is a conflict between Corel's IPmasq package and the DHCP
am currently trying to resolve this issue with Corel and will post
new information as it is obtained. This being said, if you need IP
Masquerading, you will have to use static IP's on your workstations.
guide is mainly for Dial-up ISP access. I will try to get one up
here for Cable and ADSL as soon as possible. This is going to be one
of the easier things you'll probably implement and I have to say,
that Corel has done an outstanding job with the Corel Update®
utility. We're going to list this stuff step-by-step. So do it by the
numbers and everything should come out fine.
first thing you need to do is make a connection to the Internet.
However you normally do it (ie. ADSL, cable modem, Dial-up).
startup the Corel Update utility. It's located under "Start,
the Options menu and then "Set File sources". You should
see a screen similar to below. Once you've got that dialog open place
a checkmark in the "Custom Path(s)" box. And then put a
check beside the first "deb http://" line. Make it look
just like the yellow section below, then click OK.
click the "Update Profile" button.
This will cause the system to go out and find all current patches and
applications for the Debian release. By adding that custom path it
will now search the Debian site. This may take a few minutes
depending on your connection method. ( I envy those with ADSL and Cable).
original quide advocated using Corel as a DHCP server. I have since
determined that Corel's IPMasq package has conflicts with the DHCP
server. So my advice as this point is to choose static IP's on your
workstations until I or someone else can resolve the issue. You'll
probably want to give the linux box a static IP. Check out the "Static
IP Guide" for more info on that subject. If you don't want
DHCP then skip to 7. Since we want DHCP then we need to click on the
"Available Software" tab, and then select the "Edit /
Find" menu. In there type in "DHCP" (without the
quotes). Look for the DHCP-beta server. When you find it. Click in
the status column to the left of it. This will place an ICON similar
to the following in that column.
click on the "Install" icon at the top.
This will start the install process. Corel will ask you if the items
listed in the dialog box are the ones you want to install, simply
click OK and you'll the see the progress bar start whirling away.
Once it's done you can move on to step 7.
it's finished click on the tab labeled "available software"
and select the first item in the tree. Then click on the "Edit
/ Find" menu or just hit Ctrl+F. Once the Find dialog comes up,
key in "masq". It should find the following items (in picture):
know, my Current Software profile is where they're located... I've
already got them installed. Select the "ipmasq" and the
"ipportfw" options, by clicking in the "Status"
column. Again you should now see an icon like this:
click the Install and Update icon:
During the install process, you'll be asked if you want IP
masquerading and Firewalls rules to go up and down with your Dial-up
connection (if your using dialup). I answered no, because I wanted
them to be in place all the time. You'll then be asked if you want to
start the IP Masquerading service. Answer "Y". Bingo!
you're done with the linux box. Now you need to move onto the Windows machines.
