I spent some time getting coLinux configured on my laptop so that it
will have full network access regardless of what network I happen to be
connected to via my wireless card. This is a follow-up to my earlier
thread about Internet Connection Sharing on Win2k when using 192.168.0.1
is not an option. Thanks to Nathan Chilton and others who got me started
on the path of running a proxy server in windows and having coLinux use
that proxy server to route it's traffic to the internet.
I wrote a detailed Howto on getting this all set up. It's up at:
I suppose the best place for it is on the coLinux wiki but I was hoping
a few people could look it over before I add it there. It's quite long
and detailed but I believe that if you follow my steps exactly
everything will work properly. There were a lot of gaps in the existing
documentation so I'm hoping this level of detail will help others get
going with this type of setup without as much confusion.
I have one problem with this setup that I have found so far. I cannot
ping hosts on outside networks. Does anyone have information on how to
get ping to work across a socks proxy?

I don't think you can do it.
PING is an ICMP protocol, Socks supports TCP (straightforward) and UDP
(complicated and slow).
