Hi,

I've got a PCMCIA wireless broadband card (iBurst anyone?), a laptop running uBuntu 6.10 that it plugs into, and a desk-top box running Windows XP. The XP desktop is currently peer-to-peer networked with the laptop - in practice this means that I set the subnet mask for both to 255.255.255.0, the IPs to 7.7.7.2 and 7.7.7.3 respectively, and the gateway / broadcast address to 7.7.7.1 - then use the Samba plug-in to effect files transfer between the XP and Linux systems. I currently use the wireless card only in the laptop - what I want to do is allow the XP box to connect to the net via the wireless card in the laptop.

How do I go about this ?

I have been told I need to set a rule in iptables, but some guidance as to how to do that (if it is indeed at least one of the things that need to be done) would be appreciated.

Thanks.
