I'm interested in opening up a small network lab for my research work at my house.
For this i already have purchased the following:-
#1 linux(machine) functioning as a router having 2 NIC
#1 8 port switch
Patch cables as required.
Now,the thing is that getting all this to work. I want the (3) Pc to have an access
to internet as most important requirement for any kind of research work. As it should
be the only thing that needs configuring is the linux box and frankly i don't know a
shit about iptables. Like setting up a DHCP server and doing a NAT seems GOOD in theory
but in practice i dnt know much therefore i want you guys to help me out in how could i get my whole n/w established and running.Thank you
