But to be helpful: open the network and internet connections control panel on the xp machine, right click the dial-up networking account you use, choose "properties", select the tab marked "sharing" and enable internet sharing, and dial-on-demand if you wish. Your FreeBSD machine should be set to use dhcp for the network card. It'll work fine. If both machines have network cards, connect them via a hub or switch and use standard RJ45 cables, or plug them into each other directly with a crossover ethernet cable. A normal ethernet cable will not work. Reboot the FreeBSD machine, and it will get an address in the range 192.168.1.0/24 from the xp machine. It will be able to access the internet via the xp machine.
I do not want to change the connetion to the
internet to the freebsd box. I like to leave it in the
This would require winxp to route. Is winxp able to route? FreeBSD
