Full Version: Internet Connection Sharing
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I have a small home network consisting of 4 different systems. I installed Madrake 9.0 on my main computer. This system has 2 ethernet cards, 1 for the LAN, 1 for a cable modem. Previously, I had Win2k on it and used it as a gateway for internet connection sharing. The other systems run win98 or win xp. Since I installed Linux, the other systems can't connect to the internet. I have gone through the ICS wizard in the Mandrake control center, but still no connection sharing. Does anybody have any helpful suggestions? I don't really even care about file sharing, I just need ICS to work so the rest of my family will quit giving me that dirty look when I boot Linux.
Ok, I got it working. I went to mandrake control panel and ran configuration wizard. Set eth0 to auto IP/dhcp (this is connected to cable modem) set eth1 to static IP Set gateway address to gateway device to eth0. Then went to ICS wizard expert mode and set Local Network address to, DHCP server and DNS server to, and left everything else default.
I hope this helps anyone else out there with this problem. I can't believe I screwed this up to begin
