Debian on NSLU2 device won't share Win connection

Hi all

New poster here! In the interests of brevity, I am pointing to a question I've placed over at Linux Forums. I hope this doesn't qualify as cross-posting - the post is two weeks old and despite a polite chase, and substantial posting detail, I've got ~150 readers and no replies. Rather than type the whole thing out again, I hope it is sufficient just to point to it (if not please advise, and I will rectify accordingly).

I am particularly keen to get my Windows-based internet connection available on my NSLU2/Debian, and I really have tried everything I can think of, on and off, for some six or so hours now! Can anyone advise of some basic Debian diagnostic tools I can use to determine whether (a) Windows is sharing the connection correctly, (b) whether Zonealarm on Windows is causing a problem (Windows firewall is off), (c) whether IP Chains on Debian might be getting in the way, or (d) most likely, if I have got some aspect of the configuration wrong?

On a related note, does anyone know whether/how I can download precompiled binaries for the NSLU2 build from Windows, so that they can be FTPed to the NSLU2 and installed via SSH? I imagine these would be RPMs but am not sure on this point. Thanks if you can offer a quick bit of advice here.

Thanks all

Try changing the gateway directive to the ip of your laptop ('gateway') and removing the up and down lines.


connection, firewall, internet, networking, nslu2, sharing
