Try following this guide: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/rhel-fe...sharing-howto/

It was really easy to find with Google; you should try using that some time

Hello

Really? The guide mentions dial up explicitly, and broadband not at all (AFAICT).

Nevertheless, please paste the following information for both of your machines:

/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
$ ip route
$ ifconfig
$ iptables -t TABLE -nL
(replace TABLE with each of nat, filter, mangle, raw)
/etc/hosts
/etc/network/interfaces
(this is probably called something different of red hat linucies; post the configuration of your network interfaces)
/etc/resolv.conf

Which steps of the guide did you perform? Did any of them fail?

One thought: if your ISP lets you connect more than one machine, you can also bridge the two networks instead. That effectively turns the one connected to your ISP into a switch for the other one, so that it gets dhcp information from the ISP and you don't need to set up dhcp/dns/routing configuration yourself. I'd probably go with this unless you want the ISP-facing box to also act as a firewall [and even so, you can use ebtables]. Search the web for a good bridging guide
