Totally confused by Install Network Settings
It's nice to be part of the group! :-)
I've been going at this for what seems like hours and I'm just totally
I've set up routers, and can find it's IP address and subnet-mask, but
I'm not sure
I'm entering them in the right spot.
Well, to make this simple...let me list the questions and I'll give an
example of what I think it means....
Your DNS domain:
Wow! a light just went on! is this "www"?
Your Host Name:
My moment of clarity vanished :-P
Since I'm not running a server, I don't really have a host name,
And I think it's OK to leave these last to blank, right?
Your IPv4 number:
OK, I think this is where I'm supposed to let the installer know
I have DHCP
Glancing through the documentation this was one of the first
questions, but the DHCP
question doesn't come up in the NetBSD/macppc 4.0 install
So, since this changes - I would have to leave it blank
The alternative would be to turn DHCP off, but I don't know how
to assign IP addresses
manually with my router, much less determine the IP
address of a NetBSD system
that isn't even runnning yet ;-)
OK, I know this one!!!
I think I know this one, but I could be wrong
I believe this question wants my wireless routers IP
(But from what I understand - the internet doesn't see my router's IP
but my cable internet's "gateway's" IP address )
IPv4 Name Server:
Another Epiphany!! Could the answer to this be "yes"!?
Alternatively - I know what a DNS name server is. That couldn't
be right though?!
(again, if there asking for my router's IP.... (i.e. DHCP
server) ...I am so confused!!)
(I wish I had left this one alone, because it gave me a list of 3
protocol typing looking
selections, and I picked one, but I can't get back to try
to change it)
That doesn't seem so bad...I half-way know half of the answers. But I
knew I was getting
to the point that it was going to be up for another 12-hours wasting
time google searching
for answers that I really didn't expect to find.
Any help would be very, very, much appreciated!!!
