    Internet Connection Sharing


    I have two PCs, 1 NIC in each, 1 modem in each. I can connect to the internet from both. If I set up a LAN on either PC, I can connect to the net, but I can not send or receive data. I'm setting up Internet Connection Sharing with the "wizard" in Mandrake 10.1 using the Control Center. Any ideas?

    Internet Connection Sharing

    This question is "Why doesn't my Internet Connection Sharing work?" I enabled ICS from the Control Center in Mandrake 10.1 and I can connect on my dialup connection, but I can not send or receive anything. Could this be something to do with the IP scheme 192.168.0.1 setup that was automatically configured? Do I need to setup another service?

    what i can suggest is check your proxy settings in you browser.
    i think you need to specify the ip of the computer from which you are connecting.
    You may have to run a proxy server too.
