so you mean it's going to be an internet gateway and domain server?
do you want a proxy server too? (squid?)

please elaborate......



To put things breafly i am all but lost in the depths of linux.
I am currently running samba on the server, it is lacated on an isolated network with test computers so that i don't mess up my good computers.
I will be running with a 56k :( internet connection (after resolving my modem problems) and i am hoping to achive dial on demand over the network an well as having a logon server. i am still new to linux but am learning fast. I just took a look at the manual and i will probably be attempting to set up squid now that i know what it is.
The network is running with work groups, not a domain (yet), all computers have a gatway of netmask of and all ip addresses begin with 192.168.1.___. I have good experience configuring windows clients but nothing on the server side.
I hope this new info helps.
