we want to setup a linux web server with clients windows. Kindly advise us ,
If the modem ip assigned is 192.168.6.100
then will it work this way
etho – which is connected to modem (the external card) – 192.168.6.1
Default gateway -192.168.6.100
eth1 – which is connected to network (motherboard card) – 192.168.7.1
eth1:1 – which is virtual lan - 192.168.6.2
Default gateway – 192.168.6.1 for eht1 & eth1:1

& the windows xp ip will be 192.168.6.x
with default gateway as192.168.6.1
& in internet explorer tools  internet options  connections  192.168.6.1 with port 3128

It became useful first to distinguish among different kinds of IP vpn based on the administrative relationships, not the technology, interconnecting the nodes. Once the relationships were defined, different technologies could be used, depending on requirements such as security and quality of service.

Squid with Firewall

Rayudu's picture

Please use Shorewall as your firewall. This is basically a iptables wraper software making the deadly iptables easier. You can drop all the Ipnos you do't want. They will not reach your server more so your squid.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
