SuSE has done a good job on this one. They use wvdial to run this. I have it
running and all I have left is a problem with timeouts on my Windows-boxes
on the first connection-attempt. The connection gets done but I have to
refresh IE to receive the webpage.

I have had no problems with rebooting the ICS-server, it still runs smothly
except for that little quirk.

The installation is running on a Digital Celebris GL 5133 with 32 Mb of RAM
and SuSE 7.1.

I have been so impressed with Suse installing it for an ISP I am doing work
that I am considering blowing away my Mandrake 8 install @ home. This box
replaced my Win@K box that was doing Internet Connection Sharing and failed
miserably. The Mandrake box does not seem entirely stable, if I power down
and then bring it back up to connect and share the Internet connection it
does not work and I have to re-run the Connection Sharing scripts.

My question, is anyone using Suse for simple Internet Connection Sharing?
about multilink with ppp? I never got that to work under Mandrake, but one
modem is still faster under Linux than two modems under Win2K.

This box has one job in life, connect to my ISP and share the connection to
my internal network. Reconnect if the line is dropped.

Before I dive into the ipchains set-up I want to make sure there is not a
like Mandrake that might simplify this.
