I have a RH Linux 9 with a LAN ethernet connected to the WinXP. Also the WinXp connects to the ISP service provider via phone modem.
How can I access or turn on my web surfing through Linux Mozilla browser without directly attaching to the ISP, since my ISP only supplies Win based connectivity.

I have tried different route add commands to go out to the ISP's ip address via Xp machine's IP.
The Linux machine can not ping anything via the XP's modem connection.
The route print on Xp follows:

I do not know the routes in my Xp . What should I add to the Linux routing table to have connectivity to the Web vis ISP connection (modem) from WinXp?

hi,  i don't think that XP can handle dial-in request and provide internet connection to dial-in users. Most of the questions posted here is the other way around (linux connects to isp and windows connects to linux for internet connection).  Your problems is different.

I guess you'll be needing extra software that would enable dial-in users to XP to gain internet access.

Correct me if wrong please.  I don't think ICS will allow dial-in requests then share internet to dial-in users right???

but where have you read about winXP dial-in users???

Linux and XP have connected via LAN (ETHERNET) and XP has an internet connection to ISP via MODEM.

Correct me if wrong please.

according to what i understand of your question is that you are running a winXP machine which is having an internet connection and you want share that connection of a linux machine which is connected to the winXP machine by a LAN. if this is the question you only need to install a proxy on the winXP machine and then configure this proxy in the linux browser.
i hope this solves your problem.
