Network settings for Linux behind SygateThis tutorial is no longer regularly maintained -- no questions please.
These are the manual settings for networking a Red Hat Linux 5.2 machine behind the Sygate NAT/firewall. It assumes that Sygate is working fine with other Windows machines (see Sygate Home Network Guide if you don't know how to do it) and you are setting up only the Linux machine.
You should also have installed and setup the network card in the Linux machine as eth0 (see Linux Ethernet-HOWTO if you don't know how to do it).
You need to create or edit a series of files as follows:
LINUX-NAME ... name of your machine without domain, e.g. PCLinux.
192.168.0.1 gateway ... the name of the machine running Sygate
192.168.0.x LINUX-NAME ... the IP and name of the Linux machine
............. xxxxxxxxxx ... IP and name of all other machines in LAN
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ... the first DNS server of your ISP
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ... the second DNS server of your ISP
IPADDR=192.168.0.x .... IP of the Linux machine in LAN
DOMAINNAME=ISP-domain ... I believe that it can be left blank
NOTE: Of course do not include the comments starting with ...
You can enter all the above information using the graphical interface of the Network Configuration tool in the Control Panel if you are using Red Hat 5.2.
