    Default Internet Connection Sharing

    hi!
    i have an internet access via wireless USB, from this connection, i joined my legacy Pentium-100 machine with ****SmallLinux through the wired ethernet!
    Now from windows xp, i simply enabled Internet Connection Sharing and my DSLinux connected to the internet
    Can i do same thing using OpenSuse11.0 ?
    I have two ideas -> install dhcp server & squid proxy to get internet connection! is the direction right here?
    ----
    In addition to this, i have a supplementary problem: when i turn on eth0 (the wired connection) my USB wireless connection (although it is connected) stops the ping reply to the adsl router!
    it comes back to life only after i write
    ifconfig eth0 down
    any suggestions please?
    thanks in advance!
    regards
    vaibhav

    Hi

    You can't have two network interfaces simultaneously active on the same IP subnet. So that's why you have to turn one off (or put it on a different IP subnet). I have both wired and wireless. I set the wired to activate only when the cable is plugged in. I set the wireless to activate at boot because mostly I use the wireless.

    I'm having difficulty understanding the other: you seem to have the dman small linux connected though the wired ethernet to the DSL modem and at other times you turn it off and connect windows to the DSL modem -- is that it?

    Anyway, for the normal method read this: openSUSE ICS: Internet Connection Sharing (Linux IP Masquerading) with Suse or Windows Servers

    That has options for connecting either XP or Suse to the internet and then connecting the remaining one through the first.

    hi
    thank you for making those fundamentals very clear to me! I will modify the ip series!

    Regarding the connection of DSLinux the scenario is like this:
    My ADSL has wireless option so i take internet on my main pc through usb-wireless (OS is Opensuse 11)

    From this main PC, i take a ethernet cable (cross cable) from the onboard LAN adapter and connect directly to my legacy P-100 machine (with an DLINK ethernet adapter). P-100 system has 48MB Ram and ****SmallLinux in it.

    thanks
