squid is for http https gopher and ftp.

for general sharing do this

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
ipchains -A forward -s 192.168.1.0/24 -d 0.0.0.0/0 -b -j MASQ

Them set the NT to use the Linux as default GW. Done.

(the above assumes you are using the ip adresses 192.168.1.X with a 255.255.255.0 netmask)

(or download pmfirewall from www.pointman.org and remember to answer YES when asked for "masquerade support", this also gives yo ua pretty good firewall)

oh, you must also either set the DNS on the NT to use your ISP dns. Or you could set up a chaching DNS on the linux, and set the NT to use the linux as DNS.
