Why are you people butchering your setups?!
(1) make sure you have the appropriate network setup, two NIC cards, your core is the center of the network, handling firewall, dhcp, gateway.. make sure your other pc's are on the internal NIC card.
(2) when logging into the dcerouter share, use the username and password you use to log into the web admin
very simple, guys.
stop fucking up your setups.
You cannot expect that I will modify the way things works in my house because suits the needs of the equipment, it's the other way around, equipment should reflect the need of the user.
I have specially made servers that works from 12VDC, same as the router, swtiches, VOIP interfases and 100% of communication devices in my home because here brownouts are commonday issues, so i cannot use this equipment to act as a router, not to mention the services I'm already hosting that would require to modify LMCE to do what I do today with the router (dyndns, ftp server, VPN server, asterisk with an already working dialplan, etc).
If there is no easy way to make it work without passwords, I'll use username and passwords, that's something I can live with
but there is no way that I will put an expensive machine that draws more than 300W, 24hs active, just because the setup was made that way, when I can do better with 10% of that power and operate on batteries when power goes out and leaves LMCE to do what I think it's made to do, a Media center machine, not a server/gateway.
EDIT: Maybe I can disable DHCPd, and modify network settings, so I can operate on the "default LAN side of LMCE" but I would to modify routes anyway so It can connect to the internet using the lan side, thinking about this, maybe it's easier the way I already done it, disabling the firewall, anyway there is no point having a firewall when I already have a very good one, i don't know what of the two options do you think that will make "less mess" to this box
