Centos XP windows network DHCP DNS Zonealarm Conflicts -> can talk linux to windows network OR www not both

Centos 5.1
Windows XPSP2 Zonealarm Firewall
Standard Windows workgroup.
Router with DHCP server.

Set centos for DHCP Zonealarm off  System works.
Turn on Zonealarm on XP, Centos is blocked from
contacting XP.  Put Centos IP address into Zonealarm
trusted zone.  Everything works...until reboot when
Centos gets a new IP.  Don't know how to give Centos
a traditional windows workgroup hostname that I can
put into Zonealarm...no problem, just use fixed IP
address.
Bug in Centos 5.1: Fixed IP address fails to setup
DNS.  So, now I can't connect to the web.

Is there a workaround to make all this work
without breaking anything else on my windows workgroup?
centos -> browse windows network
centos -> surf www
Windows Zonealarm Firewall enabled.
??
thanks,mike

Uh, that's not a bug.  If you're using a fixed IP address insread of 
DHCP, you have to tell it everything it would normally get from the DHCP 
server, including the IP address of your favorite DNS server (which your 
router gets from your ISP). 

PS: If you're still trying to run Linux inside a Virtual PC under Windoze 
(as I believe you were claiming to do in another newsgroup, against the 
advice of several people) then you're compounding your problems 
unecessasarily.

Ok, methinks you're giving general information about what SHOULD
happen rather than looking at the actual case.

read this:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=306601
and tell me again that it's not a bug.
Yes, this is the bug report for the 64-bit system, but is same
symptom in 32 that I installed.  THERE AIN'T NO PLACE TO INPUT
THE DNS INFORMATION.  That's why I need a workaround, like edit some
config file, to put it in.

Actually, this is a different scenario.
Running linux inside virtual pc has worked pretty well for me.

The problems discussed in the other newsgroup related to a
dual-boot system
installed with the filesystem embedded in a windows partition...
BY CLICKING THAT OPTION FROM THE INSTALL SCREEN.

This here question is a different scenario, different distribution,
different hardware.  I took the advice I got from the other group and 
did a FRESH INSTALL ON BARE HARDWARE.

It's mostly working, except for the nagging problem of accessing windows
shares because of the bug listed earlier.

Which is why I asked for help here.

Well, I use Fedora (a cousin of Centos), no issues here. 
They are planning to issue an update to the tool.

But, you don't need the tool to set your nameserver information:

man resolv.conf

Can you get into a windows network with linux?
Here is the story. I was working at a school today (guest teacher (aka sub)) and they had an old computer in the class. They gave me a username and password so that I could use it if needed. They had some filter that would not let me get to my web-email site. During my free period I put in a Linux live CD (a Debian clone called Kanotix) to see it it would boot and if I could access the network and web. Booted fine. Of course I could not get on the net.... because I had no idea on where to put the password and username to get on the network. I did find that they use DHCP because I could see that eth0 was up and was assigned an IP. Would it have been possible for me to log in? I assume they were using Windows Authentication. Can one handle that in Linux? What file would I have edited to enter the user/pass? Assuming I could have gotten on, would Linux have bypassed their web filter (I'm sure it is used to keep people out of porn sites.... why I could not access the logon site to my email I don't understand) Thanks, al On Tue, 07 Feb 2006 06:31:42 +0000, anc wrote: > Here is the story.

Still can't network Linux and Windows

Windows-Linux networking noob
I'm trying to set up the following network (using an el cheapo hub): Win 2K: "main" computer, has printer, dialup connection, etc. (running ICS, and so, acting as DHCP server) FC 1 box (Fedora Core 1, 2.4.22 kernel) Win 98 box Most of the documentation I've read about Samba has to do with setting it up as a server, but here I just want it to be a quiet, docile DHCP client to the Win 2K box, running Internet Connection Sharing (and thus, acting as DHCP server). I want to designate shared directories on the FC1 box and have them visible on the Win2K and Win98 hosts. What about NFS: Do I need NFS for this setup, or is that just for full client-server network setups? Currently, I have it so that the FC1 box can see the shared drives on the two Windoze boxes and they can see each other's shared drives. And it can log into the Win2K machine (doesn't need to log into the Win98 machine). And each computer can ping every other computer. But the Windoze boxes cannot see the FC1's shares, or log into it. What do I need in my smb.conf file to designate shared directories and enable Windoze users to log into the FC1 box (both users and non-users of that box)and access the shared directories on it?

Slow networking between windows and Linux
Greetings. I am have Debian Lenny on a wireless home network that also has a couple of Windows XP machines. They connect via a linksys router. I am finding file transfers between windows and linux samba share, both directions, very slow. This slowness also applies to doing Windows to linux file transfers using sftp. It takes about 4 times longer to transfer a 10 MB file to Linux than it does another Windows XP box. Anyways, I could use a little guidance to give some focus to my efforts. I don't mind doing the legwork, but I'm not sure which direction. If it was just samba, then there is a lot of info on the net, but things aren't so clear when it applies to sftp as well. Thanks in advance. p.s. my Linux box is an older machine, a PIII 733 with 512 MB of RAM. All unneeded services that I have installed are disabled, just ssh and samba is running. You should first verify that basic network performance between your Linux and Windows systems is good. Naturally I'd suggest netperf :) there are though other tools. If the shares are serviced via request/response, don't rely simply on a netperf TCP_STREAM test - some variation on a netperf TCP_RR test would be in order. happy benchmarking, rick jones http://www.netperf.org/ -- the road to hell is paved with business decisions... these opinions are mine, all mine; HP might not want them anyway... :) feel free to post, OR email to rick.jones2 in hp.com but NOT BOTH...

Windows network with a Linux server
I'm sure there's already been a thread to cover this but I can't seem to find it. I currently have 2 PC's at home that are connected with an Apple Airport Express primarily for the wireless music streaming to my home entertainment system. The Airport Express is then plugged into my ADSL router so I have both PC's running on the same Internet connection. I've got another box that I now want to run as a server and am thinking of installing Linux on it as I know it's a lot safer than windows. How would I set this up so that Windows clients could connect to for the stored data and could the Internet connection be run through the Linux box with everything else using it as a proxy? I would also like to use it as a mail server and assume it's not possible to use Outlook on the Windows clients?? If I setup 2 different IP addresses for the router and the server I presume this will make it more secure but would it be possible to ftp to the box from outside my network?

Hi! This is the current situation: i have a machine running Linux (RedHat 8.0), a laptop (SuSE 8.2) and a windows xp machine - currently, my sister's pc - on the same network.

windows-network-password and linux
hello, I'd like to connect a linux box instead a win95 box to a network. The network is somewhat particulare, since it needs an authentification: When I start the win95, prior to load the desktop, win95 asks me for my user-id, my network-pwd and a "domain". Then it loads the desktop. To get access to the internet, the browser (IE) needs a proxy. In fact, the proxy seems to verify the user-authentification. If I do not give the password and I close the the dialog, win95 desktop also loads, but no network services are available. I have tried to connect a linux-box to this networ...
