Proxy Traffic between two NICs


Hope you are doing well. I would like to provide access to the internet to some users connected to my workstation.
I have a workstation with 2 NICS, one (NIC1) is connected to the internet and the second one (NIC2) is a new non-configured NIC that I just installed.
As you can see the description I attached below, I have a printer that I would like to connect to the internet through NIC2. I would like to know which configuration I have to set on NIC2 so that the received traffic is forwarded to the NIC1.

Thanks for your reply

Assuming this machine is running some version of Windows later than Windows98, you should be able to do this via ICS (internet connection sharing). In 2018 though, it is more common to just plug all devices into the router. If you router only has a single network connection, then a switch is very cheap.

In 1998, sometimes an internet connection was done via  a modem, rather than a router, so ICS had its place. Not really the best way to do things now.
