I have `old_box' with a dialup ISP which I'm still using for mail etc,
and `new_box' onto which I'm slowly ftp-ing what I want to keep.
Naive question is, what sort of configuration I need to do to connect
new_box to the net? Would it involve route -add host gw ?
new_box is 172.16.4.1
old_box is 172.16.4.2
Would it go like:
/sbin/route add -host ISPnumber gw 172.16.4.2
and would I have to change this each time I dialup depending on the
remote address I get from the ISP ?
I don't want to blow anythin up, which is why I'm asking first.
