Sending Internet from a G5 to a G3 Powerbook via Ethernet - Mac Networking

Hi All, Here is what I want to set up: I already have a G5 running Mac OS 10.3.4 that's connected to the internet via an airport network. This has been working fine for a long time.

    Default Sending Internet from a G5 to a G3 Powerbook via Ethernet

    Hi All,

    Here is what I want to set up:

    I already have a G5 running Mac OS 10.3.4 that's connected to the internet
    via an airport network. This has been working fine for a long time. I want
    to share this computers internet connection with a G3 Powerbook running Mac
    OS 10.2.0 through an ethernet cable.

    Here is how far I've got:

    On the G5 in system prefs>sharing>internet tab I have internet sharing on
    and the ethernet selected. The G3 can connect to the G5 and files can be
    sent back and forth. In the system prefs> network> TCP/IP tab I have it set
    to 'using DHCP' and it has gotten an IP address from somewhere. But the G3
    still has no connection to the internet (well as least internet explorer
    can't connect).

    One thought I've had is to install 10.2.8. Would this be worth while?

    Any other ideas??

    Thanks in advance,

    Nick.

    Entity Nick spoke thus:
     
    Hmmm... I believe it should say "Share your connection from <Airport> to
    computers using <Ethernet>.

    Once you are online you are online, there is nothing browser-specific about
    the service.
     

    For sure but skip the 10.2.8 and stop with 10.2.6.

    You can download a "combo" update from:

    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=70174
    Mac OS X 10.2.6 Update Combo: Information and Download

    The technology at that time was just being built in, very likely it is
    working in 10.2.6 but not in the default Jaguar install.

    You might also want to check the firewall on the G5. If its on and it
    somehow didn't get configured properly by the sharing pane, that could
    prevent the G3 from getting out.

    If the firewall is running, then turn it off, then try connecting with
    the G3. If the G3 can then get out, it was the firewall. If not, then
    its not the firewall, just turn the firewall back on.
