I don't even know if this is possible.
I have a system with a hardware firewall and it sits directly on the
I want to use COLinux when in Windows, but have the Linux able to see the
internet. I get only one 'real' IP via DHCP, so am thinking I need a way
to NAT that virtual interface.
Does anyone have any ideas how this can be done?

Steps to do it:
- setup Windows so it can access the Internet
- once you've got that working, install/configure coLinux with an IP
address in a different subnet, preferably a private subnet (e.g. if
your Windows IP address is 22.214.171.124, make your coLinux IP
address 192.168.x.y with subnet 255.255.255.0)
- configure the TAPI interface in Windows to a different address on
the same subnet as your coLinux box (e.g. coLinux=3D192.168.x.y, Windows
TAPI=3D192.168.x.z, both with subnet 255.255.255.0)
- configure the default gateway on your coLinux instance to be
192.168.x.z (the TAPI address under Windows)
- ensure the default gateway on your Windows box points to your
- enable Internet connection sharing on your Windows box
- from coLinux, confirm you can ping the Windows box
- from Windows, confirm you can ping coLinux. If not, you may have to
manually edit the routing tables under Windows, to tell Windows that
traffic going to 192.168.x.z has to go via 192.168.x.y
- from coLinux, confirm you can ping the hardware firewall. If it
doesn't respond, but everything else works, trying pinging
- if you get problems, turn off any (software) firewall on the Windows box
That's all from memory; can someone correct me if I've left out a step or t=
