I have watched this group for sometime, but being a complete novice I have
never had anything to comment on, nor really sure of how it all works.
However I am STUCK on internet connection sharing. I cannot get the damn
thing to work. I have two machine running MDK9 on a cross over cable
connected to eth0. Internet connection on ppp0 modem dial up connection. I
have tried the control centre set up and it still doesn't work. I have
never been able to get it to work, and after trying all over Christmas I am
quite simply going mad.
Ping both ways on both machines OK Static IP's 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2
Mount folder for sharing OK. So network functions.
I have some feeling that it is to do with the /etc/sysconfig/drakeconnect.conf
on the remote machine but do not knwo how to check it or what I am looking
Would this be the place to ask for help?
If so what next?
