I'm trying to give my Ubuntu-based desktop internet from my Windows-based desktop, but it seems to be refusing the connection.
I can successfully connect to the internet by directly plugging it into the router (it's not in an area I can keep the desktop 24/7 like I need it to be), but it refuses to use my Windows connection, and it doesn't even show up (on Windows) as being connected.
Does anyone have any idea what this could be? (I've confirmed that both Ethernet ports are not damaged, and that the cable works fine as well.)
Note: Windows XP and Ubuntu Server are the computers.
