I have a VPN connection to the internet with my PC and want to connect my Playstation 3 to the internet. I have Ubuntu 12.04 on my PC. How do I do that?

Can I use Internet Connection Sharing? I only have one LAN spot in my PC. Do I need to buy another one? Does ICS work with VPN? Are there other options.

I can ONLY use VPN to connect to the internet.


First You will need a VPN that actually Supports Linux and then you can follow this guide....

So as to work on internet connection sharing you'll need one computer, called the host computer, that's connected to the Internet and that has a separate connection to the other computers on your network. You'll enable ICS on the Internet connection. The other computers on your network then connect to the host computer, and from there to the Internet through the host computer's shared Internet connection. You need to enable ICS and Configure TCP/IP.
