Netwroking with FC4 & XP Pro, No Connection?


I attempting to share my broadband connection with a second machine running XP Pro (my main machine is FC4 Linux). I would also like to be able to share files via Samba and have my linux machine masquerade the IP of the windows machine.

Here a diagram of the LAN. The machines are named skyscraper (win machine) and flypaper (linux machine)

Skyscraper------Flypaper------------Router------------- Net

In FC4 with the KDE desktop. I setup a new ethernet connection and I gave flypaper a IP of 192.168.10.1 and a subnet mask of 255.555.555.555. I also config FC4 built in firewall setup to allow my network device connection to skyscraper to be a trusted device.

I switch over to Skyscraper and the LAN was shown to be connected but had limited connectively. I went to Control Panel = Network = Properties = TCP Properties and gave Skyscraper a IP of 192.168.10.2 and config my ISP DNS properties. I also set skyscrape to use Flypaper as it default gateway.

I dropped into CMD and used ipconfig /all and found that current gateway, DNS, Local IP were all correct. Also win now saw the connection alive and full connectively. But now when I ping Flypaper from Skyscraper I get all pings to time out. Also when I try the same from Flypaper the shell informs me that the network is unrearchable. Samba in KDE also can not see a workgroup within the Network.

Could someone tell where I've gone wrong?

make sure your other pc is on the same subnet i.e. also 255.255.255.0..... also depends on your router are you NATing from your router to an IP supplied by your internet service provider?

pardon my question....but why are you connected as such

Code:
Skyscraper------Flypaper------------Router------------- Net
although i use a debian and xppro....this is my setup and works purfectly

both the debian and xppro boxes are connected directly to the router and not each other....and firewalls still work..and i use the router's address as the gateway....

I want Flypaper (lin) to masquerade the IP of Skyscraper (win). I say the LAN will be better protected this way. Later I will wish to throw in a slackware firebox for added security. But utanja I'm connecting them both directly to router at the moment until I get this sorted.

I'm using a NB1300 with Nat on, both Flypaper and Skyscraper are not on public IP's. I also have a roaming IP address from my ISP.

by roaming i believe you mean dynamic ip.....that should not be a problem.....i have dynamic from ips to my modem and static for all on my lan....
