    Suse10 wlan file sharing and internet connection sharing


    Hi,

    I am using a dsl modem for modem that is connceted to suse.
    Can any one guide me the best way to set up communication and enable internet conncetion in between Suse and xp through wifi?

    Ravi.

    Try setting up shares between them. Link them through Samba.

    Thanx for the reply.
    The windows machine is detecting the network on the suse box and suse detects windows as well when i assign manual ip address. But they dont ping each other.I have explored and setup the file shares through the samba from yast.
    Can u tell me how i can proceed from here?
