One method of bridging network interfaces
Authored by: argh128 on Oct 09, '06 08:21:12AM

Internet sharing only allows one direction access.

This allows communication in 2 directions.

Machine A -- Router -- (Internet and Machine B)

This setup allows machine A to talk to Machine B, and Machine B to talk to Machine A.

Internet sharing would only allow Machine A to talk to Machine B.

Unfortunately, you need to know the IP address of the target machine.. but otherwise this works well.


A completely SANE Canadian.
