    Internet connection sharing


    Hello,

    I've been struggling with this for days now and w/o any success. My Linux PC is connected to the internet via broadband modem, and I want my Win PC (which is connected to a second ethernet adapter in the Linux PC) to connect to the internet too. I connect to my ISP using VPN. Is there any simple howto or tutorial? I'm new to Linux and far from being a net expert, so most of the stuff I've read so far didn't realy help.

    TIA

    Hi debian,

    Thank you for answering. I tried the solution described here:

    But still no go

    I'm not sure, but I may have a problem with my dhcp settings? The Windows PC recognized the Linux PC as the default gateway, but its IP is outside the range in the dhcpd.conf file.

    Any help on this will be appreciated.

    TIA
