It might work if you disable the firewall on your XP box. I don't know, but as far as you being vulnerable, the XP built in firewall is hackable with nearly any 8 year old anyway, so I wouldn't be too concerned about turning it off! Try it.

To my surprise, turing off Norton PF solved at least part of the problem: I can now ping between the 2 machines, although I REALLY feel insecure when the internet connection is up

What it did not solved, though, is the internet connection of the linux box itself. Even if it can ping the windows box, it cannot ping any of the DNS... The gateway is set to 192.168.0.1, DNS is set to my provider's DNS (although I noticed it switches back to 127.0.0.1?).

I tried to ping my DNS, got no answer... what should I check now ??

Many thanks to everybody,

Yann

Norton should have an option in it's setup up wizard (unless you got a really old version) for allowing ICS so you don't have to disable the firewall.

Try running the ICS wizard again on windows, then on linux obtain everything via DHCP including automatically get dns. Hopefully maybe possibly it'll work now.

Enable Norton and run the setup wizard thing for Norton some option like setup home networking or something like that, it should detect the second network card and allow traffic through it...cough...at least it should.

The internal IP of your XP machine can be used as your Linux client's DNS server- ICS enables the internal ip (192.168.0.1) to be a DNS "proxy".

So, the internal client should have the following config:

IP: 192.168.0.x (where x is between 2 and 254)
Netmask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
nameserver: 192.168.0.1 (you can add others from your ISP also)

Make sure the XP firewall (or norton, blackice, etc) is configured to allow traffic from your internal IP range.

This should get you surfin on both machines.

It is very,very difficult to help someone over a forum - people can only do their best - at the end of the day we ain't the dipshits that can't get things to work - you are.

How pleasant you are.

Hum... Sorry, but I still have a problem: DHCP is enabled, Norton Personal Firewall is configured, Gateway is set to my host IP, and still I cannot ping my provider's DNS or connect to any web site...

I checked my DNS settings, it goes first to loopback, then to my host IP, and the domain to search is set to mshome.net.

When I try to set it to first my host IP, then my provider's DNS, and domain search to my provider's site, it does not work and the configuration is set back to original after reboot.

What's next?

Talking similar prob

hi all ...

i have the same prob only reversed ... i have a mandrake 9.0 box connected to the net and is being used as the gateway box and all other pc-s connected to it thru the network connects to the mandrake box ... as far as i can tell all my settings seems in order ... the windows pc-s has the mdk box as default gateway aswell as my isp-s two dns servers ... but i still can get them to go online ... it looks like it might be something missing in my resolv.conf file but i am not sure ... can anyone help me out on that one ...

thanx

I wouldn't be suprised if you were banned from this forum. I have only recently been coming here and reading and trying to help out people that are having problems in something that I somehow got to work. I am only glad to help someone. However, when someone does take the time and give their two cents, and they get thrashed by someone like you. That would make someone think twice before they decided to take part in a forum. If someone posts something that is wrong, or if you think that there is a better way of doing something, then so so. But please don't thrash someone just because the help that they tried to give you did not solve your problem.

I just had to rant on that, sorry

Regards, Kenny
