I used to use Wingate to dial in to my home from remote sites using a
laptop. This was set up to simply allow me access to COX high-speed
internet connectivity for me no matter where I was.
I recently decided to migrate to Linux to get away from all the viruses
exploiting Microsoft Windows and causing me heartburn at every turn.
It was recommended to use DeleGate on Linux to do the same as WinGate
did on Windows, however, the manuals available have overwhelmed me I
have become more confused at how to configure DeleGate, than ever before.
I simply wish to be able to dial into a simple phone number, connect to
this Linux box throught a modem in the box, have "some program"
reconnect me through the Linux box to the COX internet connection it
accesses at home, then be able to access the Internet as I would if I
were directly connected at home (ofcourse slightly slower).
What are the "simple" configuration parameters to get this done, and is
DeleGate the correct product, or should I be using something else?
Also, how would I configure Linux to allow DHCP on the modem, to provide
simply one address to the Laptop so I don't have to hardcode one on the
Laptop's configuration (don't have to modify any of the Laptop dial-up
WinGate was truly a 'nobrainer/noparameters install', is DeleGate the
correct product, or is there something 'simpler' for this situation?
