opie internet over usb mandriva 2009.0

posting this here because i can't edit the opie wiki at

how to connect opie to the internet over usb:

desktop/laptop opie is connected to:

on ipaq:

set ip address as:

plug in usb chord to box

on box:

from terminal:
dmesg|tail -n 10
- you will see some information about usb0 (most likely) and the type of device, etc
ifconfig usb0 up
(this ip address should be different from the one you're using on your ipaq

netstat -rn
should return something like this:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface U 0 0 0 usb0

on ipaq
make sure to have set your root password by using the 'passwd' command at the terminal

on box:
(enter ipaq's root password)

go to mandriva linux control center
-> network & internet
-> share the Internet connection with other local machines

on opie or on box where you have ssh'ed into opie
ping or something else to test internet connection.
