    Default Home Gateway,

    Hey all,
    Ive been using Scott Morris's cookbook on making your SuSE machine a home(or business) gateway. DHCP/DNS and Routing. Been playing with Beta 3 for openSuSE 11 and the routing applet in YAST is not there! Downloaded the obvious, using the Software Manager, but still no option to asign a default gateway to the DHCP interface. Ive asked Scott to provide another "cookbook" for us GUI restricted users.
    Anyone have another answer....or am I pre empting the final release of openSuSE 11...

    ICS - openSUSE qoute "
    You will not be able to perform this step if you are using Network Manager and not Ifup.

    Open YaST -> Network Services -> Routing

    and check the box marked Enable IP Forwarding

    Click Finish "

    cheers andreas, but in 11 (beta3 at least) the Routing icon under network services is no longer available...

    I'll keep digging, after all, thats we suser's do best..

    a small win! It would appear that "Networking Manager" is the default as opposed to the option. Andreas's link caused me to think about the first line in the How To.

    Will try a fresh install without Network Manager and hopefully this will fall back to ifup as the default.

    Wow! This is a very well written and easy to understand for a relatively non-technical user like myself. Thanks for posting that link!

    One of my current efforts is to help a bit in the documentation clean up area for openSUSE. There are many good Novell "Cool Solutions" ... and it has me wondering about the relationship between "Cool Solutions" and the current openSUSE "wiki's". I'm puzzling if it would be useful to migrate some of the "Cool Solutions" over to wiki's, ... the philosophy being it might be easier to maintain the "Cool Solution" for newer versions of openSUSE/SLED/SLES if it was in a SUSE wiki. Clearly this is not the thread to raise this issue (I will likely have to start a new thread in an appropriate area ... in fact, I suspect this forum is not even the place to raise such a question). Still, I see this new merged forum an excellent example of how we are making an effort to "consolidated" the dispersed aspects of SuSE into something more consolidated and easier/beneficial for users to find and use, ... and thus it makes me think this applies to documentation as well.

    It makes me think this may be a question worth asking.

    I need to ponder this some more.

    Thanks again for the URL.
