My guess is you need to enable advanced routing
on the XP box and setup routes on the linux box
to forward anything to the XP box.

My answer is to use Internet Connection Sharing on the XP machine, and set the Linux system's gateway address to the IP of the XP machine. Which Linux distribution is it (RedHat, Fedora, SuSE, Mandrake)?

Share the XP connection using ICS. (Theres a wizard to do this if you need help). Configure the Linux box to obtain IP by DHCP.

My recomendation has 2 options:

Activate Internet Connection Sharing on Windows XP and set Linux to use DHCP, ICS on Windows enables a "DHCP like" configuration for your "home network".

Install proxy from Analog X on Windows XP, and configure your linux browser to use that proxy. You can find this proxy from .

Merry Xmas.
