Asked by jasajit on 2007-10-01

I have 2nos of computer. PC1 & PC2. PC1 with internet connection, with ADSL modem & with 2nos eth cards; e.g.- eth0 & eth1 (Both are Devicom 9102-based). When I on my PC1 it supply internet on this. My ADSL Modem is connected to eth0. The PC1 is with WindowsXP & Ubuntu in duel. PC2 is connected with PC1 with eth1 through hub. When I boot PC1 with WindowsXP it provides internet in both e.g.- PC1 & PC2. But when I booting PC1 in Ubuntu then it supplies internet in PC1 but not in PC2. Now my question is that how should I get internet in PC2 when booting PC1 with Ubuntu. I am very new in Ubuntu and Linux too. So please help me how to share internet connection in PC1 when booting in Ubuntu, and how to configer the PC1 & PC2.

Your question is a little hard to understand but a good program to use if you want to share your internet connection from ubuntu is "firestarter" using that it is very easy to set up internet connection sharing.

Alan ..... My problem is very simple. My 1 computer (PC1) is with duel booting. e.g. - WindsXp & Ubuntu. Another on is (PC2) with WindowsXP only. Both computer are in LAN. When I am starting the PC1 in WindowsXP mode both are working properly in LAN. And getting internet in both of them. But when I booting PC1 in Ubuntu it is working properly with Internet. But PC2 is not getting the internet or the PC1 in LAN. so...what to do?

What is "firestarter"? How to use this? please guide me.

Alan (mrintegrity) said : #3

firestarter is a configuration utility for firewalls, it also allows you to configure internet sharing. install firestarter and run the program from the administration menu. in firestarter you will see a box titled "enable internet connection sharing" or something simmilar. tick that and everything should work. you will ahve to set pc2 (the xp pc) to receive it's ip address automatically (which is the default on xp)

Thank You very much Alan.......My Internet is now flowing in Windows-XP computer. Firestarter really works. Thanks again to teach "Internet Connection Shearing". Now 1 more thing I want to learn. As "My Network Places" in Windows shows the other pcs in local network and their sheared drives at double clicking on them. Just like that is that possible to get the Win-XP pc and its sheared drives from Ubuntu pc? I heard that SMB Configuration dose the same job from Ubuntu for Windows. So, how to do "Samba Configuration"?

from ubuntu click "Places > Network" and you should be able to browse your windows shares. To share files from Ubuntu click "System > Administration > Shared Folders" and choose which folders you wish to share on the network, also make sure you select "Windows networks (SMB)" as the share type otherwise the XP computers will not be able to see it.

Alan I don't know to configure SMB. Please help.

Alan (mrintegrity) said : #9

There is nothing that you need to configure specifically, the instructions I gave you previously are all you need.

Sorry to disturb You again. As you told I set all those things like that. But it still not working. From System > Administration > Shared Folders when I getting Shared Folders Pop up menu in Property Setting shows that -

Path: /home/server
Share Through: Unix Network (NFS)

Again & again I am setting Share Through : (SBM) but after restarting the pc it automatically changed to (NFS). So I think it still not working properly. So what to do I don't know. Another one thing is that from WinXP pc by double clicking on My Network Places it shows The Server named pc but double clicking on it it gives a messege that "\\Server is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.". So what to do next I don't know. So I am disturbing you again & again. Please feel my problem cordially & help.

1. Make sure Samba deamon is installed and working, you do not need to reboot after having selected "windows network (smb)" as it should work without reboot.

2. on the windows computer make sure that network browsing is fully enabled.

I am not an expert on Samba. perhaps someone else can help too.

Can you help with this problem?
