Internet connection sharing with win98


Hi guys

I have setup a Linux machine and windows me so the linux machine has access to the internet, but win me has Internet connection sharing.

I want to do the same thing with a standard win 98 machine, without internet connection sharing. I need to do this because of compatibility problems with win me (basically its crap), is this possible without it?

Thx guys

Post some ideas

Hi. Can you test to configure firewall-ip software (like ipchains or iptables) in your Linux, and connect win98 and winme to the linux?

I,m not really sure how to do that m8.

Basically all I can do is assign ip addresses to the two machines 192.168.0.1 for the machine with the modem and 192.168.0.2 for the other. If I set it up on Linux then I would put the default gateway as 192.168.0.1 but other than that I havnt got a clue.

If you could talk me through it, it would be most appreciated.

Thx

well I think you should use linux as your internet connection and router but if you need to do windows 98 it must be second edition to incorporate ICS. This is not available free of charge as an update, you have to buy second edition to get it.

There is another solution which is free. Look on www.tucows.com for freeware proxy servers. The free ones will probably only allow 3 machines, but if thats all you have it will work fine.

Basically ICS is a proxy server anyway.

WinProxy is a pretty good choice but I think it's shareware. You should go with the freeware if you don't want to fork out the money.

Proxy+ would be a good one to try.

Exclamation

The optimum solution is connect modem to the Linux. LInux doesnt need any commercial software for sharing Internet Connection, because Linux is a router. The kernel have a particularity to solve them (ip-forwarding)

hmm... i'd like to point out that i'm personally offended!

I gave you a step by step guide on how to use linux as a gateway with a dial up modem in it, and you went and put the modem in windoze!!!:-)

read teh ip masquarading howto, it's all in there, and is VASTLY VASTLY VASTLY nicer than doing it under windows. And then use mserver for dialing from windows.

Same predicament

I have the same predicament. I am forced to use the Windows machine to connect to the Internet since I use ADSL (Alcatel Speedtouch USB). Alcatel's came out with a driver but setting it up in Linux needs a level of expertise which I haven't got at the moment. So I'm trying it the other way around by connecting to the Net through Windows and try my other Linux machine to access the Windows machine (proxy server).

Cool Try Mandrake 8.1

Mandrake 8.1 has support built in for the Alcatel SpeedTouch. I messed with compiling the kernel on Redhat 7.1 before Mandrake 8.1 came out.

There is a point in the installation where you can select DSL and the SpeedTouch modem is a choice. Once that is installed, then go to the readme which gives you 2 lines to run and the DSL connection is active. Much easier than going through the HOWTOs for getting a SpeedTouch USB modem working

Angry IPTables Stopping here and there

OK, I have seen a few posts from people regarding the Internet connection sharing of things such as Modems, ADSL, and Cable Internet.
I have a cable modem, and I used to run Mandrake 7.2 with the IPChains Firewall. I ran a script called PMFirewall, and everything was excellent.

However, because I was not at the time a firm believer of the "If it aint broke, dont fix it" concept I upgraded to Mandrake 8.0 which uses the 2.4 series of kernel and the beloved IPTables.

As you are probably aware, the IPTables and the IPChains are a little different, so I had a look at Shorewall for IPTables, and the Internet connection shares fine. HOWEVER, it stalls every now and then, for around about 30 seconds. This happens at least once every 5 minutes. It is a pain if I am downloading something as it times the download out, and my IRCD service keeps dropping the link to my IRC hub server.

Anyone out there use IPTables as their firewall and Masqer, and have a decent firewall script that they know of that works well?

Thanks Heaps.

Rogue2k, that is exactly what I'm trying to do! I have version 8.1 of Mandrake Linux, along with the Alcatel Speed Touch USB DSL modem. I selected "ADSL", and then selected "Alcatel Speed Touch USB". It tells me to insert the first installation disc (no problem), but then tells me to enter disc 5 (commercial applications disc 2), which did not come with the standard edition.

From what I've read, this modem should be able to work in all three 8.1 editions.
