10.6: Automate Internet Sharing revisited
Authored by: ALT147 on Mar 09, '11 09:22:05PM
You can also start Internet Sharing from the command line like so:

service com.apple.InternetSharing start

but it seems to need admin privileges, so encapsulating it in an Applescript without putting your password in clear text could be difficult. Also the service command (as it will so helpfully inform you) is deprecated - someone smarter than me can figure out the equivalent command for launchctl.
