Internet Connection Sharing from Windows XP to Linux


I don't know if this has been answered well before, but does anyone know how, or where to find a decent tutorial, on how to set up Linux to share an Internet connection set up on a Windows XP machine?

To set the scene, its a standard Peer to peer connection, and I've set Samba up so I can see Samba shares in Windows (but not windows shares in linux).

Is there even a way to do this?

I'm using SuSE 9.3 so any info specialised to SuSE would be appreciated..

Cheers

All that linux needs to share an internet connection thru windows is an ip address on the local (lan-side) segment.

EDIT: This assumes that ICS is enabled on XP, and that you are not firewalling lan-side connections.

Linux systems can access windows shares. All the linux GUIs have tools. If your windows box is secure, and not using simple file sharing, then you'll need to add a user with appropriate priveleges to the windows system.

Theres lots of info about this on the net.

seeing windows shares on Linux box

Yes there is a way. You have to mount windows shares on you Linux box with "smbmount //windowsmachinename/sharedrivename /toanydironlinuxbox/.
Then use Konqueror and put in address bar "smb:///
