Sharing an Internet access between Falcon and PC ?

Sharing an Internet access between Falcon and PC ?

Post by Stéphane Pere » Mon, 29 Nov 1999 04:00:00



Good evening,

I would like to share my internet access (using an external modem)
between my PC and my Falcon, with their parallel ports.

On Falcon I've got the very last STING version. On PC, I have
windozz 95B. I've got the adequate parallel cable (intensively
tested with Parallel Copy).

The problem is the STING configuration. I've seen the site of
Olivier Booklage (http://obooklage.free.fr) but don't understand
some things.
Here is my ROUTE.TAB file :

# cnx parallel port
192.0.1.0  255.255.255.0  Centr. PLIP  0.0.0.0
# masquerading
0.0.0.0    0.0.0.0        Masquerade   0.0.0.0
# cnx modem 2
0.0.0.0    0.0.0.0        Modem 2      0.0.0.0

Is there an error some where ?
Moreover, in the CPX for configuring the ports, I've set the
"masquerading" like this :
- virtual machine : 192.0.1.10
- masking IP (modem 2) : 192.0.1.11

I must admit I don't know a lot of things about TCP/IP... :)

If you can have more info, please tell it :)
Thanks !

Are there any Windows drivers for plip? I got the impression you would
need Linux on the pc side?

First try to get a tcp/ip link between pc-Falcon without any
masqerading. When this works it's easy to setup the masqerade part.

When I tried to link Linux/Mint to STinG with ppp there were lots of
problems. This was last June so things may have gone for the better. If
possible try with SLIP first.

I do have a very reliable ppp link between my Win-95 pc and the TT
here via seral cable. I have to start "Remote access" on the pc side
first and then activate the port in STinG. The opposite does not work.

First you need ip-addresses for your ports. I would use:

Falcon: 192.168.1.1 . Set this in "STinG port setup" cpx for the plip
port. Don't forget to set protocol (ppp/slip) and mtu at the same time.
This port has to be manually activated.

Pc: 192.168.1.2 to be set on the pc itself.

If you activate "Add default route through port" in the STinG dialer
configuration pages yuo don't need any default route in ROUTE.TAB . My
ROUTE.TAB would look like this (with real TAB:s instead of spaces):

192.168.1.0     255.255.255.0   Centr. PLIP     0.0.0.0

That's all to get the local connection. When this works try to add
masquerading:

It's best to simply keep the preset addresses as these will work just
fine. Note, you should _not_ activate the masquerade pseudo port. It
will be activated by the Dialer when you get online. Modem 2 should not
be activated either. Also you must select "Use masquerading" in the
Dialer setup pages.

You must set the nameserver numerical address on the pc by hand.

Please note that the only file you must edit by hand is ROUTE.TAB . In
DEFAULT.CFG you may also want to raise ALLOCMEM to 150000 or so.
Everything else is entered in the program dialoges.

1. Using a (PC) modem for Internet access on Falcon



$5 !!!! I just tried to buy one, and they wanted 15UKP (about $30(US))
for it !!!  I made one myself for 6.61UKP (about $12(US)) and the
cheapest I've seen for sale is 10UKP (about $20(US)).
