Network Bridge- IR to Ethernet
I have a standard ethernet network. One of the computers attached to the network is my laptop. Connected to my laptop by means of ppp over infrared is my zaurus (linux pda).
I can ping the zaurus from the laptop.
I can ping the laptop from the zaurus.
I can ping the laptop's ethernet interface from the zaurus.
What I cannot do is ping any other computers on the ethernet from the zaurus. I have done
"echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward" on the laptop, and
"route add default gw 192.168.129.200" on the zaurus.
My laptop is running the stock slackware 9.1 kernel (2.4.22). I have read several howtos on this, but (in addition to being about separating two groups of computers to reduce traffic) are for redhat style distros with a /etc/sysconfig/ dir. Slackware does not have one. I have read in several places that I will need to recompile my kernel- PLEASE don't say I need to do this.
Also, is there a better name for what I am trying to do?
Thanks in advance
