Hi. I have an Internet connection configured in Linux (Redhat 9.0) and I would like to know how I can share that internet connection with another local computer that uses Windows XP. I have already done this for Windows XP (using "bridge"), but now I don't know how I do that in Linux. Any help is appreciated!

What kind of connection do you have?
If you already navigating try this:

copy everything inside a file...
change the " " with your data
and run it..

Here it goes....


LAN_IP_NET="your lan ip range (maybe"
LAN_NIC="the internal network interface (eth0 or eth1)"
OUT_NIC="external network interface (eth0, eth1 or ppp0 and so on)"

iptables -A FORWARD -j ACCEPT -i $LAN_NIC -s $LAN_IP_NET
iptables -A FORWARD -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT

You should be navigating on XP by now....
