Internet Connection Sharing Problems...
Hello, I'm trying to setup internet connection sharing between two boxes. Here's my setup:
Cable Modem --> Slackware/Windows --> Slackware
Slackware/Windows = Gateway
Slackware = Client
I have a crossover cable going from the Gateway to the Client. I went ifconfig eth1 192.168.0.1 on the gateway. Then typed netconfig on the client and told it to do static, that it's IP was 192.168.0.2, the gateway was 192.168.0.1, and the netmask is 255.255.255.0. I left the nameserver/dns thing blank. When I try to from the client to the gateway, it says:
PING 192.168.0.1 (192.168.0.1) 56 octets of data
and it just sits there. It works the same way from the gateway, changing the IP's of course. Each machine can ping itself from its 192.168.0.whatever address.
EDIT: I think I found it out. I don't think eth1 is configured right. If you could help me out with that, I'd appriciate it.
P.S. While in Windows, the box can't even setup the eth1 card(Ne2000 ISA). It found it once and called it 'net'. I tried to load the drivers and gave up. I figured I'd get Linux to get it going first. I tried to remove it and put it back in but its dissappeared again. (Not sure if this means anything to you at all)
