    You're using knoppix? I didn't even know that existed in BackTrack?

    I would like to know, is it a dialup-modem you're using? Or is it cable-modem?
    Or is it the most used, adsl-modem? Or is it neither of these?

    With non-dialup modems BackTrack should make you able to automatic connect
    to the internet, if you're using an usb-cable then pull that out and use a real cable!

    After that if you still can't access the internet, make sure you have your external
    interface up by writing ifconfig. In most cases when speaking non-wifi it would be eth0.
    (i think as i haven't seen anything else so far).

    For example if your internet device is eth0 and to bring it up i would write:
    Code:
    ifconfig eth0 up
    (very simple, and very good)

    If it's up write
    Code:
    dhcpcd eth0
    (i am of course just assuming you get an ip normally by dhcp.)

    If you are on a lan network, then you might have to specify the ip
    yourself. I haven't come out for this yet, but to do this i would either
    use the GUI form which is located in your 'home' directory or you could
    try do it in console. (i've forgotten that command as i'm used to use dchp though)

    But one thing i DO happen to know is there's probably more info here
    on these forums if you use the search button, or you could try the BackTrack Wiki.
    If not then you could try go to offensive-security.com and try look at some of their
    vids. I do happen to know that there is a vid about general commands in BackTrack2

    That's my 2 cents.

    You can set up SSH from the KDE menu, or you can run Apache or Samba. make sure the connection port is forwarded to you machine through your Firewall or Router.
