Lex Posted September 8, 2007 Share Posted September 8, 2007 Hey guys ! I have a windows xp computer and a Linux one . The one with windows has internet access ( and two ethernet cards ) and I would like to be able to access it from Linux too . After reading on the internet and various forums I found some guides ( none of them working for me though ) .I'm posting the Linux setup I used : ifconfig eth0 down ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 up route add default gw 192.168.0.1 echo nameserver_ip > /etc/resolv.conf After doing all this , my connection didn't work ( I couldn't even ping the windows computer ) . I found it strange that after echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward i was able to ping and get replys from the windows computer . The internet still doesn't work . Any tips/guides ? I can't put the second network card in the Linux computer , so please don't suggest that as an option. Thanks ! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
