Internet Sharing
Authored by: pekk on Oct 01, '02 07:53:18PM

Please, I can't get this working. It seems that it is so easy that everybody forgets to give clear instructions.
OK. I have two ethernet cards working (Mac running OS X). One goes to the ADSL modem and the other to an ethernet hub where also is connected another Mac. So, what are the TCP/IP settings on the second card? (the card that goes to the ADSL is already ok) AND what are the TCP/IP settings in the Mac on the network? What differences would be if this Mac is running OS 9 or OS X? (currently switching between both in this Mac).
I've tried a lot of settings and no one seems to work. Please help!

I have and still use only a single CableModem connection and share it with 3 Macs (G4933,G4433,G3iBook500). Works perfect and not only I use a LOT of different settings and the best of it. is I do not use Private IPs (192.168.x.x-10.x.x.x-etc) I use complete Blocks of Numbers a do not even own.
EG:(X06.105.128.0/19)-(X00.8.0.0/16) (X=real#). But they are dead networks not active, meaning impossible for others not in your network to access to that IP but makes my HUB and Router more secure and responsive.
I will not tell how to do it here, but if you are tempted and at least know a bit about networks, I will be more than happy to explained it in a more private place.
The information is real and have been used for more than 2yrs.
