Sure. You can set this up in YaST under the following area
System Administration ->
Network Configuration ->
Network base configuration ->
Select your ethernet device with the cursor keys, and press F6
Enter 192.168.1.2 as your Default gateway address.
Alternatively, you could just add/change a line in /etc/route.conf to look
like the following:
Note that there should only be ONE default route in this file.
Now, you've configured your Linux box to transmit all packats to the NT
box for further delivery. How to set up the NT box as a dialup machine
capable of Network Address Translation (NAT), or equivalent, is quite up
to you and your NT resources.
Apparently, this functionality is not integrated into NT4, and I have not
heard good things about the commercial and shareware NAT-like programs for
windows. Certainly many have been cited as security abominations, but I
am again not an expert in this field.
Perhaps the more Windows-oriented in the crowd could fill us in?
Of course you could always have the linux box be the dialup server, in
which case you would use ip masqurading via the ipfwadmin tool (for 2.0.x
kernels) or the ipchains tool (for 2.2.x kernels).
