    six months back I had started working on Linux and since then I had decided to power my server with Linux instead of win NT on which it was previously running. Now I'm half way on setting up my Linux server. I am using Redhat 5.0 with kernel 2.0.35. I have recompiled my kernel with all the nessasary supports like ip-masqurade, firewalling etc built in. Now finally i need the information on how to get it running with win95 clients. Do i need any additionl software to set up interaction between my Linux server and the win95 clients? If anybody can provide me with some information on this do mail to me. If you can then also try to give me some detailed guidelines on how to go about the configuration or else tell me about some sites providing information on this. Regards Pankaj

    well you may use Linux server as a gateway to all your machines in your cafe for internet access, internet sharing, fileserver, internet caching to accelerate internet connection and save bandwidth.

    Sure, and dejanews hasn't existed in more than a decade, the post is dated 1998 (just short of 15 years ago) and "RedHat 5" should be a giveaway if
    none of the other clues hit you on the head to tell you that this post was
    old and shouldn't be replied to.

    It's so old they reused the 5 for "Redhat Enterprise Linux 5" a few
    years ago.
