    Do you mean that you have 2 static IPs? Or that you have one static IP given to you by your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and you want to share access on that single IP?

    If you have 2 static IPs, then I think you just need to get the cable to both boxes through a switch or router. If you have a single IP, you will need to have IP Masquerade set up. I don't know if Windows can do that, but Linux can. Of course that will require that you run an ethernet cable from the Linux box to the Windows box. Firestarter is probably the easiest away to get Masquerading up quickly.
