internet connection sharing


Recommended Posts

Well, attempt number 2 to switch to Linux, Mandrake didnt work out too well but SuSe 10 seems to be working great so far!!

 

Anyway my question is, I have two NICs, One is wireless which goes to my router and gets me online, which obviously is working fine :D second one is wired and i want to be able to connect a PC/Another Router/My Xbox(eww microsoft) to it with a crossover so i can get online with that PC/Play Xbox Live/whatever.

 

and a secondary question i have is i have a Windows XP Computer sharing a Printer, how do i install that?

 

Thanks for your help :)

Alright I dont know if you found a solution to your problem and if you did could you point me to the reference page cuz i'm interested too. So far the only thing I've found was that you have to download bridge-utils from the repos and that the cmd can only be excuted from root account (I dont know how to set up sudo yet and su doesn't work).

So I hope this helped
