Internet Connection Sharing

Below is what worked on my Win95-Redhat7.1 network. Redhat7.1 has a dialup connection.

Run the Network Configurator to setup your network.

Names: l"Leave blank"

Domains: "Leave blank"

Search for hostnames in additional domains: "Leave blank"


list your ISP's dns ip #s

Hosts: localhost.localdomain enter linux computer's (connected to internet) name

192.168.02 enter other computers name


Routing: Leave this page blank. + do not enable network firewall forwarding (IpV4)

The win95 computer is setup to use private IP#

In network properties under TCP/IP click "Specify an IP Address" and enter:
subnetmask will be your Gateway.

Enable DNS and enter your ISP's DNS IP#s

"Host" name will be the windows computer's name

Once your network is setup:

Run the Firestarter Firewall wizzard and enable IP maquerading

Firestarter Firewall

Once you figure it out it only take a few minutes to setup instead of days of frustration. Write your network settings down when you get everything setup. If you have any DNS problems. Connect to the internet first, load your home page or surf anywhere once then start the Firewall.

DHCP is not used.
