I want to set up the following: using CoLinux as a router for my host
(Windows XP). THe host will be nat'ed behind CoLinux which will use
PPPoE DSL to connect to the internet.
I get a few problems however: I bridge one NIC and use it to connect to
my DSL modem. This works fine: I can get a connection to my ISP. This is
the config.xml line:
<network index="0" name="nforce2" type="bridged"></network>
Now I need to make a connection between CoLinux and the host. This is
were problems start:
If I use a TAP adapter, I can't get a connection, at all,
If I put in a 2nd bridge, Windows always freezes sometime in the
bootprocess of CoLinux. No BSOD; just a freeze, not even the mouse can
So what is the proper way to bridge one network interface and get a
network connection to the host at the same time?

Other option can be to run colinux has proxy. Because proxy work on
application layer, may be easyer than router.

That's not my problem. I can have NAT in 2 seconds: apt-get install
ipmasq, but: as soon as I put in a second NIC in the colinux instance
either it does not work at all or windows crashes. For a proxy I would
need a working connection to the host OS too, which I currently lack
And if I have a connection, I can just as well do proper NAT instead
fudging around with proxies
