I've created a wired connection with network manager. The direct connection is linked to a switch, my system and another system are also linked to the switch as well. However, the other machine does not have any connection and wants to get internet connection from my machine.

What crossed my mind was to set a shared connection in network manager. But, when I choose "shared to other computers", other options like DNS search, ip address, netmask and gateway get disabled. is there any way to accomplish what I have in mind?
