internet sharing between two linux boxes
I have two computers connected in a local area network I have one with fedora 1 and the other had winXP - I managed to share the internet connection, which was on my fedora box to the winXP box. recently I installed on the same computer that had winXP fedora 1 and expected the internet connection sharing to work as well. to my surprise it did not.
I used iptables to establish the the internet connection sharing between linux and windows.
When both computers run linux there are no pings but when the one which is not connected directly to the internet has winXP there are pings .
Should I install a specific software to establish internet connection sharing between two linux boxes?
thanks in advance,
