internet gateway using RH6.2 and DSL

By rpang ·
Currently we are using RH 5.2 with a 3COMS 56K modem as a internet gateway and it has performed beautifully. However, we will be getting DSL soon so I need to figure out how to set up the thing along with RH6.2. Any help or link will save the a lot of time.

You really need to upgrade your OS, RH 5.2 is pretty stale, and full of security holes.

All you'll really need is a network card, and a DHCP client. I've set up two DSL connections from two different vendors, its been cake both times.

With SOME ISP's it may be as easy as the two previous postings, but most these days require PPPOE. If you are not getting a static IP address, then you'll need the PPPOE client available at www.roaringpenguin.com
They even have a Redhat 6.2 RPM version for free download. I'm currently using it on a Redhat 7.0 system for Earthlink DSL service, and it works great!
