Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you want to use GNU/Linux you need to set your box to enable ip forward ( using netfilter – iptables) and installing a squid proxy to share your internet conections.

Please, read this documents and you will be able to do what you want.

    Don't know which os you have. If it's win2k/xp, you can configure ICS. It's simple. Take properties page of lan adapter you are connected to internet. Sharing tab -> Tick the check-box. Give the ip of this system as the gateway in other workstations. Now it should work. Bye. Note: If your os is win2k/2003 server, you can use Nat, which is more reliable and configurable than ICS.

    You don't mention how many computers are in the workgroup that you wish to connect to the Internet. If it is more than two machines, you probably want to consider getting yourself a router such as one of the Linksys RV series, and using that as your gateway to the Internet. You will have the Internet connection coming into the router and then out to all the workstations in the group. There are two models currently in the series, a 4 port and an 8 port model. If you need more, us an unmanaged switch to provide the needed ports. While the router does have some firewalling capabilities, I'd still suggest that you firewall each machine with a good softeware firewall. I lean toward ZoneAlarm, but there are other choices as well. Steve//
