Proxy Server / Router Setting on 386 machine (coyote linux)

Postby sakbar » Wed Aug 21, 2002 2:15 pm

hi,

iam planning to add a 386 machine as proxy/router which will be connected to my dial up /cable connection (future).

Iam planning to use coyote linux

my system configuration is:-

* amd 386 with 4 mb ram
* 130 mb hdd
* cga monitor & card <can i use it as only for text, no need for any gui env)
* 32 bit super i/o card


Is above config right for coyote linux or should i go for some other distribution or machine.

TIA
SHAKEEL :roll:

Setting on 386 Machine

Take a look at MuLinux that will work on your system without any problem :) but you will need to do some tweaking [ how much not sure - as never tried doig that ] but it is worth a look.

With your hardware may I suggest that you keep copy of this list handy:ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/fileutil/00index.txt

These are DOS utilities some you will need. BTW it is University of Vaasa, Finland [ Country where Linux was born - not this University ] site.

May I suggest that you take a look at http://www.ipcop.org, this is a firewall and very good one at that, some of the earlier version may be made to run on your hardware. Try increasing the ram, if you can!

If you want to go the firewall route [ advisable - you can make it work as router. IPCop is in fact stripped down Linux Distro ] then Bob fryer has an excellent resource http://www.netintegrity.com.au/webindex.html hope this helps.
