RedHat Linux - Guide to DSL Connection

Information needed:

  • Assigned IP address.
  • Assigned Subnet Mask address (
  • Assigned Gateway address (Change the last octet of the IP address to "1").
  • Assigned DNS (

    Log in as root, or switch to the root user by typing su root.
    At your shell prompt, type the following:
    /sbin/ifconfig eth0 netmask x.x.x.x
    Replace x.x.x.x with the Static IP address assigned to the client.
    Once the command has executed, type /sbin/ifconfig. The results should look similar to:

    lo Link encap:Local Loopback

    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    RX packets:1775 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
    TX packets:1623 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:3E:11:61:FF:5E

    inet Mask:
    RX packets:4325 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
    TX packets:3257 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
    Interrupt:11 Base address:0x280

    Open the file /etc/sysconfig/network in your favorite text editor. The contents should look similar to:


    Enter the default gateway IP address of the client (

    Save the file.

    On the file /etc/resolv.conf in your favorite text editor. The contents need to look like the following:


    Save this file.
    It should now be connected via DSL. To verify connectivity, ping the gateway
    It should get he following response:

    PING ( 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=254 time=11.935 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=254 time=12.968 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=254 time=12.824 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=254 time=10.028 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=254 time=12.744 ms

    --- ping statistics ---

    5 packets transmitted, 5 packets received, 0% packet loss
    Press CTRL-C to stop pinging the server.

    Your Linux box should now be connecting via your DSL line.

    NOTE: To make these changes permanent between reboots, you must put the command

    /sbin/ifconfig eth0 netmask in /etc/rc.local.
    RedHat machines may use the /usr/sbin/netconfig utility instead.
