Hi everyone, I am new to this forum but a How to Geek fan for a long time. My Linux flavor of choice is PCLinuxOS which I use for work and home. My question is this...
I need to access our remote machines from my Desktop. I believe I need to add a route ( permanently ) to my routing tables etc. I am not having any luck getting the right command and how to run it i.e. from the #prompt or from a directory etc.
What I need is for someone to give me the entire "How to". I have tried route add -n 192.168.x.x netmask gw 192.168.x.x but get errors re: SIOCADDRT I can't figure out.
I like Linux but it is a bit confusing to an old Windows guy.

Any help ?? THANK YOU !!
