I am trying to set up my network I am with suse11.1 x64bits. The problem is there the uni network goes under proxy(Aberystwyth uni by the way), so there is a way to connect, but it is for ubuntu.
this are the instructions:
How do I set up my computer for use in halls? (Linux)
I make them but I think this commands:
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
must be different for suse, because displays me errors reading them, so can you help me to set up this connection. At the moment I am running Ubuntu, but I want SUSE.

Belay that, just recognised this is for a wired and not a wireless connection.

As NNTP users won’t see edited posts, here my idea on how to solve that.
There is no proxy, the wired connection is WPA-protected.
Maybe you can achieve this via “PRE_UP_SCRIPT” in the ifcfg-eth0 file.
See “man ifcfg” for more information.

so you say that this code in the files is same for Suse? Nothing to change in it?

No, I don’t.
won’t work under openSUSE, but you can put any custom script into the ifcfg-files and get this executed.
Read the manual page for ifcfg and for wpa_supplicant.

Sorry, but I am new in Suse , so can you give the exact command to put in this file to run mu network :?

No, I can’t, even if I wanted to, because I have no sufficient information about your setup.
The only thing I can give you are the exact commands to get the manual pages.
and especially for wpa_supplicant read the file
which contains a comprehensive explanation on how to configure wpa_supplicant.
As long as I don’t see any indication, that you at least try to inform yourself by reading manual pages or other documentation you were pointed to, I also don’t see any reason to give you any further advise, but maybe someone else will do.
