XP + Wireless + Linux networking question?
Date: 20 Jul 2004 19:24:45 -0700
I need suggestions on how to configure a network with the following
requirements and hardware:
I have a Linux box, an XP box, an XP laptop, a 5 port hub, and a 4
port wireless hub.
The internet is connected to the wireless hub and currently provides
internet for the XP box and a laptop at the other end of the house.
I would opt to do internet connection sharing on the XP box with it's
connection to the internet being routed through the Linux box but the
laptop user doesn't want to have to have the Linux box running in
order to get access to the internet. I, however, would like to be
behind the Linux firewall.
I can imagine how to get the Linux box to provide firewalled internet
to the XP box. But what happens when I want the XP box to participate
in the windows network with the laptop and vice versa? How is that
Any help and ideas are appreciated.
