How do I share the internet using Linux


Hey, does anyone around here know how to share the internet using linux?. I mean I have a modem connected to one PC 'A' & two other PCs 'B' & 'C' are connected to 'A' via ethernet. How am I supposed to share the net with 'B' & 'C' so that I will be able to access the internet on 'B' & 'C' too. In Windows, all I had to do was install a proxy software like analogX or something like that on PC 'A' & configure the other PCs to point to PC 'A' using the configurations options available in the control panel. Is it as simple as that in Linux?. Please let me know.


I am using Red Hat 8 by the way.

Drone out.

easy way, install firestarter and that will add a firewall as well IP forwarding.
