I have recently setup a DHCP-Server on an Ubuntu 10.04 server machine. The machine has two interfaces (eth0, eth1). I have the DHCP server setup correctly because computers connecting to the network get a DHCP IP address but they cannot connect to the outside world.
I believe it has to do with the two interfaces being mapped/bridged together. How do I properly map one interface to the other? Is it bridging or mapping?
I see on this page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/dhcp3-server they do something like
What does that exactly do?
In other places I see the following:
iface br0 inet static
bridge_ports eth0 eth1
Which is better or more efficient?
Sorry for all the questions, I'm a noob at setting up a DCHP Server.
Thanks for your help.
