Re: Share COM1

Yes. It is eminently possible and recommended! There is extensive documentation
on this. You could read the Network Administrators Guide from www.linuxdoc.org
1/ read the new version of the Diald-HOWTO and

2/ then read the IP-Masquerade HOWTO (to quote "IP Masquerade is a networking
function in Linux similar to one-to-many NAT (Network Address Translation) found
in many commercial firewalls and network routers. For example, if a Linux host
is connected to the Internet via PPP, Ethernet, etc., the IP Masquerade feature
allows other "internal" computers connected to this Linux box (via PPP,
Ethernet, etc.) to also reach the Internet as well. Linux IP Masquerading allows
for this functionality even though these internal machines don't have an
officially assigned IP addresses".

If you have any questions  implementing this, you can ask questions here.
