Use nm-connection-editor instead of iptables?

Asked by Bernhard Reiter

In order to give my Openmoko Neo Freerunner access to my laptop's internet connection, I currently have to issue the following commands on my laptop (which runs Ubuntu 9.04):

    iptables -A POSTROUTING -t nat -j MASQUERADE -s
    sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
    ip addr add dev eth1

( see )

Is there a GUI only way to achieve the same, eg using nm-connection-editor?

You can use firestarter to configure iptables. I'd personally put that command in a script and have it running at startup. Much easier

ufw is already installed by default. You could download gufw a gui for it in the repos.

Can you help with this problem?
