trying to share an inet connection with XP
 
I have an XP box connected by 56k modem to the internet.
I have a linux box connected via ethernet to the windows box.
After having assigned private IP addresses, the linux box now "sees" the windows box.
I have set the appropriate internet connection in XP to "sharing".
What else do I have to do to get linux box connected in this manner?

setup DHCP on the linux box

hi
just do this
share the internet connection from the Xp machine(rifgt click on connection,go to advanced and choose share his connection),it will make the ip adresss of the win machine as
192.168.0.1


then on ur linux machine set the setings of eth0 to get ip adress automatically
u can do this by
#setup
go to network
choose "obtain ip address automaticaly"
exit from that

#service network restart

and u r done
open up a web browser--mozilla, konqueror,etc etc

i am using this kind of setup only

regards

Thanks for the help, but I'm not quite there yet.

I prefer to use bash to get this going. I thought "pump" might be the command I need for the DHCP, but I'm finding it tricky.

masand you seem to be referring to some gui. as I say, looking for the bash equivalent.

Code:

[root@localhost ~]# service network restart
try that

solved
 
OK, I just solved it.

I used "pump" to relase the interface first, and then I pumped the NIC again, so as to renew the connection.

All solved, thanks for efforts to help.
