How to set up a home network using the following: Redhat 6.x as server, 56k modem, with windows 98 workstations/clients. I will explain the following as well: PMFirewall, InternetJunkbuster, DHCP, Portsentry, a script that will keep your server online 24/7 and also update your dynamic DNS entry if you wish to have one. This will result in a server that will assign IP addresses to your workstations, protect you to a certain extent from intruders, a proxy server, and 24/7 connectivity to allow you to telnet, ftp, ssh, etc into your server.
