NetworkManager does not offer "shared to other computers" option in Fedora 19
Last modified: 2015-02-17 10:44:18 EST
Description of problem:
I've an "fedup --network 19" upgraded Fedora 19 machine (64 bit) - upgrade was done on June 28, 2013 after the announcement of GA of F19. In Fedora 18, I could share out my eth0 using the "shared to other computers" option. In F19, it does not seem to be available.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 19 GA version for 64-bit.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on settings
2. Choose Network
3. Choose Wired
4. Try creating a new Profile
5. In the IPv4 section of a new profile, there is no "shared to other computers" option in the "Addresses" section.
No way to share out the ethernet port.
should be able to share out the ethernet port
I have found a way around it using nm-connection-editor and I can now share out the ethernet port. It would be good to make that available in the applet UI as well.
The editor can do it, but the Gnome Control Center panel does not implement shared networking for wired.
Yes, this option is missing and would be extremely helpful.

more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
