Question Connection Sharing Problem.

Hello Everyone,

I'm trying to enable connection sharing on my 2 PC's.

1st PC Has

Wlan0 to connect to internet and eth0 connects to PC 2.

2nd PC Has

Just eth0.

They are connected with a patch cable.

From what i heard from other's is that with Network Manager all i had
to do is create vpn ethernet connection and set it ipv.4 to connetion
sharing but i have done that and my 2nd pc still does not connect to
the internet. Any ideas how i can do this?

also chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.ip_forward (then /etc/rc.d/rc.ip_forward start if nm doesn't do that)
