10.2 internet sharing is really flakey...help!
I use the built-in internet sharing feature of 10.2 to share my dial-up connection with all my computers on my home LAN. My iBook dials up, I turn on internet sharing, and all should be well. My other computers are configured to use DHCP to aquire an IP address and that also is working fine. I can mount drives from each computer on another. I can ping all computers. One problem: the internet sharing isn't working. I've played with it a million times checking, double checking, triple checking everything and it's all set up so it should work, and it worked fine before. Just last night it decided not to work anymore. I can get online with my iBook obviously since it does the dial-up, but neither my tower nor my iMac can get online. Anyone have any idea why this isn't working? Any suggestions? Anything!!! This is really pissing me off
If it's a penny for your thoughts and you always put your two cents worth in, who's getting all these extra pennies?!
