Karma = No Internet


Recommended Posts

From command line run

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

That should correct your Internet sharing issue.

For real? Sweet! I wish I had it on me to give it a try, but I'll be back to it in 8 - 12 hours. What's going on there? I thought echo just printed (showed) anything you type after it?

You are correct in the statement that echo will just state whatever you type after it, however you are then using the > character to force the echo statement into the file /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

Linux reviews the /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward file to determine if forwarding of the internet interface should be allowed. When set to 1 then you will not only receive internet on the pineapple but also on any clients. When set to 0 then only the pineapple will have internet, no clients will.
