    Networking windows 7 64bit with 32 bit PC-BSD


    Im new to any type of Linux base operating system. I currently running Windows 7 64bit on lets say my main computer and iam a dialup user (no choice) since PC-BSD 8.1 cant be connected via dialup i'm trying to connect thru my windows 7 machine(gateway). It seems that windows machine doesnt recognize the bsd machine and i have also tried Ubuntu to no avail on same computer that i have now bsd 32 bit on.I have posted over at the PC-BSD forums and it seems no one could help me there as that is what they implied so here i'am. Now if you think i stand a better chance of Ubuntu working than BSD let me know as i have it on DVD also..10.04.

    Thanks

    The good news is that whether your operating systems
    are 32 bit or 64 bit will not affect their ability to communicate
    over a network. Describe your system and your problems
    in more detail.

    In order for your Windows machine to be a gateway,
    you need to activate Internet Connection Sharing,
    assuming it has an ethernet card, to connect to other
    computers. The other computer should be configured
    with DHCP, to obtain an IP address automatically.
