Sharing a Wireless LAN connection with XP [Fixed]
I'm trying to set up a mini LAN with my Linux box (running Fedora Core 3, kernel 2.6), and my XP box (home, and SP2). I've been trying to find similar situations to mine on the web, but only found people wanting to connect up ethernet ADSL routers to their XP machines. I know that this is similar, and that I've probably overlooked something very simple somewhere along the line.
This is the way that I've got it set up at the moment:
Can you see anything wrong with it?
The Linux box can ping itself (192.168.1.255), but no-one else. XP can ping itself (192.168.1.254), but not Linux (XP can ping everywhere else... it's the one connected to the interenet). It says 'Request Timed Out' in XP. There are no firewalls on the Linux box, SElinux is disabled, and I've also disabled the firewall in FC3. The XP firewall has been told to allow all traffic on the ethernet card. Windows Connection sharing is off (I tried it with it on as well, and no joy). If I enable the Ethernet Adapter in XP, it 'conflicts' with the Wireless LAN (and therefore my internet access, while I know that this is an XP problem and outside the limits of this forum, but you never know what others know :wink: ) There is no Samba, nor VNC (I believe that's what it's called) running on either machine, I'm just trying to get access to the internet. I have also tried putting the linux half on a different LAN (192.168.2.*) with no success. The Gateway for the linux box is has been set to the router (192.168.1.1) which (with my basic networking knowledge) *should* be passed on by XP.
Any suggestions would be muchly appreciated.
