Automatically start Internet Sharing via LaunchDaemon
Authored by: club60.org on Nov 11, '09 08:34:16AM

Hm... What am I doing wrong? I just enable internet sharing in sharing preference pane and it stays enabled no matter how many times I restart my iMac.

Then isn't the question what are you doing right? =D

I too am pretty sure that connection sharing has stayed on through a reboot for me, although I haven't used it in a while.

Yeah, I have a 12" PowerBook G4 that I use regularly to share Internet to my Dell laptop running Ubuntu (the wireless card support was great in 8.10, dropped the connection a lot in 9.04, and now kernel-panics me in 9.10). I swear that the Internet Sharing preference sticks through reboot, although I'm not 100% sure. I usually just put the PowerBook to sleep. Will test later and post back the results.

Tested with restart, and Internet Sharing persisted through the reboot.

PowerBook G4 12", 1.33 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 60 GB HDD, 10.5.8 with all the latest updates.
