Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 161338
RFE: Add "Internet Connection Sharing" support to Network configuration.

Description of problem:
Many SOHO users enjoy the benefits of Microsofts Internet Connection sharing
feature. Linux has had NAT and IP Masqurading for a long time. However it has
long been hidden in the bowels of sysctl and iptables/ipchains. There exists no
easy, out-of-the-box way for a RedHat/Fedora newbie to easily (and securely)
share their computers Internet connection with others on the same network.
I submit that work needs to be done in this area of the the network
configuration tools for RedHat/Fedora Linux.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This would be useful indeed
