Re: how to share internet connection in fedora

Azeez, what you need is not trite retorts from resident list imbeciles (see Bill's response below), but rather to employ an iptables firewall application/script. There are numerous available to meet any need from simple to enterprise-capable. Firestarter, Shorewall, and I believe there is a basic firewall configuration utility in the distro. The web-based firewall gui in Webmin provides a very simple rudimentary funtion for this. There are many others. Keywords: firewall, nat, masq.

Right, without knowing if he's asking how to plug two computers into a switch, use Fedora as a firewall, run multiple virtual machines network connected, or any of the other things you could mean by "share internet connection in fedora." Instead of asking for clarification so I could actually help with his problem I should have pulled an answer out of my ass so I look smart?

Well I guess I should have, you sure did.

On TV game shows someone gives an answer and then the contestant has to make up a matching question. On a mailing list the question comes first and then you have to understand it and provide the matching answer.
