Dos anyone know of a "network connections"(to use the MS word) application for Linux?
I just got MEPIS Linux, and am having problems with my DSL and LAN connections(through ethernet).
I know that we can use telnet or ssh to connect to linux from windows,but i don't know how to use MS word in telnet or SSH.
May be i disunderstand your meaning.
I've never used MEPIS but doesn't it have a configuration centre thing going on? If not you might want to have a look in /etc/resolve.conf but configuring networks from text files is never fun!
i usually just use the included network tools that come with the OS, you shouldnt need to use other apps to connect to a LAN with linux, generally they have that capability included in the install package...though i could also be misunderstanding your question...
