Fedora20: Client server networking configuration

+2 votes

I am using Fedora 20 on two computers and I have also one computer that use Windows 8.

I wont realize a local network with these computers, but I am a little confused about the way to arrange my (client server) network configuration .

I understood that DHCP is the core to do the network configuration, but I have some doubts about how I have to arrange it.

Reading the documentation, I got the opinion that nothing need to do in the computers that have the role of Clients on the net; instead on the computer with the role of Server it need to write the file /etc/dhcpd.conf.

That is exact ?

What other important operation need to do to do because my local network works correctly?

It exists a good PRACTICAL tutorial to accomplish this task?

Routers are generally able to act as DHCP servers, and it's probably  best if you set them up that way so that you don't have to deal with it on any of your servers. (I don't think I've ever seen a router where setting DHCP up required much more than a few mouse-clicks, saving your changes and restarting the router.)

I need to add a Hebrew keyboard in my computer (Fedara 20).

I used the tool system-config-keyboard to select the Hebrew keyboard , but among the possible choices lacks the keyboard that I need..

I thought that this keyboard is not provided by default and must be installed .. but I have not found a chance to do this installation.

I would like to have some information on how to solve my need.

Network Manager won't let me do that, and the command-line tools I used back in the older versions of Fedora don't seem to exist any more.
