[SLUG] network newbie


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. 

Thankyou,

Nick
