Linux as a GATEWAY ---> HELP!
Posted on 2002-07-03
The scenario is the following...
I have a p133 notebook running linux mandrake 7.1 with not gui installed so i am using the console for everything as the gui is too slow on the notebook. This notebook is connected to a HUB. My ADSL modem is connected to the same HUB. I have another computer in another room which is connected to the hub as well (there are now 3 things connected) and it has MS WINXP on it. I want the linux notebook to connect to my ADSL connection (i know the username and pswd and the DNS search suffix) and once connected, it must share the connection so that other computers on the network can use the internet too. Tell me how to configure the linux box and the windows xp box and i will award the points. By the way the work group on the windows computers is MSHOME.
Thank - you...
