Well, I was making a dumb mistake.
I was trying to use bridged networking, but I was also turning on network
sharing. I didn't realize in reading the Wiki that sharing was for NAT
So, I now have two bridged networks set up. eth0 hooks to wireless. eth1
hooks to wired. Both use DHCP. I specify the actual hardware's MAC address
in my command line for both connections (I'm not sure if I should do this).
I would like to use VNC without having to look up whatever ip address dhcp
has given me this time, on whatever network I happen to (or not) be
connected to. So, I'm trying to set up a Microsoft Loopback adapter. I'm
running Win2K & using winpcpap bridging, so I'm not sure if this is
appropriate (I read somewhere that winpcap has problems with loopback). If
anyone has done this, please share how you got it to work (static ip addy,
netmask, gateway, on Windows & coLinux side).
Also, I'd like to make the coLinux machine totally invisible to the outside
world. Is this compatible with the above setup? How is this best done?
Thanks in advance,
