As for this one, my computers are connected through lan. i've a desktop
which runs on ubuntu & i've a laptop which runs on suse 10.0. ok now,
what i've done is that my router which my link to the outer world is
having a GLOBAL static ip, dns configurations etc. to access the router
one needs to goto & it'll display the settings. 
now my router is connected on the other end to my swtich which is my
interface for my internal network LAN on which as of now i can connect 6
machines simultaneously.

feel free to discuss. i like healthy discussion & interaction.
