Internet sharing issue "URGENT"

Hi everyone,

I have a Linux computer connected to Internet with ETH0 and ETH1 connected to a Windows 2000 computer in internal network.

Internet connection is a broadband connection. Can some one please tell me how to share internet in Fedora Core Linux operating system, so that I can access internet on both the PC's Fedora Core Linux and Windows 2000.

Thanks and Regards,

Fedora Core internet sharing

The easiest to setup and use is firestarter, since it will use masquerading to allow the computers on the inside network to go onto the Internet without having to use logins and passwords - the PCs are just set up as a "Direct Connection to the Internet". Download and install it, then run "firestarter" to configure it, making sure to check the box that asks if you want to share the internet connection. You may need to manually start it by running "/etc/rc.d/init.d/firestarter start" the first time.

A second option is to turn on Squid in RedHat core. However, this is more complex to setup and only runs a proxy service, which means the users have to have a login and password. If you elect this option, email me and I will help you, since I've done it already, although for home use I prefer firestarter.

You can also run the firewall setup you already have and enable ip forwarding and marquerading.
