Internet Sharing


After a couple days of sorting out my BT Voyager 100 with EciADSL Drivers ive got it working and i want to share it.

As far as i know i connect via PPP0 and i want to share it via ETH0.

How can this be done... I seen something about IP Forwarding...

But i dont know how to set it up...

You need to be looking at NAT (network address translation) to masquerade your requests. The Linux box with your ADSL modem on needs iptable rules setting up, so anything coming in from your Windows box is sent out from your Linux machine, and data returned from the Internet is correctly sent back to Windows. Are some easy tutorials on nat + masquearding with iptables if you do a quick search - there's problem something under the 'Answers' section on here.

How many network cards have you installed on your linux machine? I think you need 2. One is connected with your Windows machine, and the other with Internet. If NAT is complex for you, you can use "squid" as a proxy server.

Post your result of "ifconfig" and "route" here, these might help me to find out the problem.

In Yast2 in the Masquerade settings it says i need 2 components in order to set it up... e.g. a Modem and a Lan card... my Lan card is in the list but my modem isnt. i dont see why, i used eciadsl to install the modem and it works fine somehow i gotta get that device into the Device list in the firewall settings.

ppp0 is the device that connects to the internet. Is it listed in the device list?

For manually configuring internet connection sharing.
# iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE
# echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

In your Windows PC, did you setup the DNS address of your ISP?

Can Windows PC ping any Internet IPs and get replies? If yes, that means the Linux PC is sharing the Internet connection. The cause is the DNS address setting in the Windows PC.

In Windows PC, the setting should be:
IP: 192.168.0.2
Mask: 255.255.255.0
GW: 192.168.0.1
DNS: the DNS addrsss of your ISP

And if the Linux PC's IP forwarding is working fine, the Windows PC should have access to Internet. This is how my home network works.

If these don't work, I have the second solution, run squid in the Linux PC, in Windows PC's Internet browser, set proxy like this: 192.168.0.1 port 3128. This definitely works, but you need to setup something in squid.conf. If you don't know how, just say.
