Re: help with ppp--> Linux-eth0-> windoze home network
How are you connecting the two machines? If you do not have a hub, you need to have a crossover cable to go direct from one ethernet card to the other (adduming you are using 10/100baseT, not coax). After figuring out that, you should be able to configure the rest. Use swat for the samba configuration (for both the printer and the share), and debian does a wonderful job of getting ip masquerading correctly the first shot out of the box (most of the time); you just need to install ipmasq package or ipchains, and compile the kernel for ip forwarding and all the options mentioned in ip masq. howto.
