I am trying to setup ICS on my Ubuntu machine which is connected to the internet via Wi-Fi and is set to share via ethernet. The client PC uses windows 10.
I followed the very top section of this help.ubuntu.com guide hoping it would be enough to connect two machines together.
In order to get the two devices to talk to each other i gave the host machine
192.168.1.1 and the client machine
mask /24, gateway 192.168.1.1) as seen in Share wireless Internet connection through ethernet. My router uses the
192.168.0.x address range so my manual assignment should not conflict AFAIK.
The two devices can ping each other perfectly fine now. Without this the client PC could not even detect a network (perhaps I don't have DHCP being served from Ubuntu but I don't know how to set that up).
However, the client PC still can't reach the Internet and I don't know what I've done wrong.
What should I do?
