I'm trying to set up my Debian machine as a gateway to the outside network, with (for now) one windows machine going through it via a hub (Linksys router). I've followed instructions for both Debian and Redhat to set it up, but after I followed all the instructions, restart networking on Linux and restart the machine on windows (both with dhcp and assigned address), I get no ping from windows to the linux IP. Is there somebody who can help me out with this, to find out where my problem is? I'll send files or whatever other information there is, just name it if you can help. I want to make it clear that I tried for a few days with no success, and am now making a plea to the Debian community.
