Internet Connection Sharing in RedHat 8

By kush ·
I would like to set up an internet cafe and would like to install Red Hat 8 on the the box which shares the internet connection (trying to avoid the Microsoft Licencing issues). I am fairly new to Linux, so please tell me how I can go about the problem. What files to I edit/create what else do I have to configure? Please help me. If anyone has sample scripts I would be greatful to have them. You can email me at Sorry for the bother guys.

re: Internet Connection Sharing

i would buy a $50 router with 4 to 5 ports. you can then "plug in" pcs with various os's.

if you are installing a rh client, just follow through the install process and configure dhcp (if your broadband uses pppoe, you must configure your routerwith uid and password-use windows for this step)...

Look at loading the squid caching proxy server and iptables for the firewall and NAT.

The last time that I setup

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Internet Connection Shari ...

A RedHat gateway I just told the computer that it was the Gateway durring the setup but this was with RedHat 9 so it may be a little different to the previous version but the install went without a hitch and it worked perfectly as Microsoft would say "Out of the Box."
