Dear group,

I just installed (following the wiki) 2008.9 on my FR and tried to connect
from a debian box. Applied the following:

 Debian, Ubuntu and others

Edit /etc/network/interfaces and add:

auto usb0
iface usb0 inet static
up iptables -A POSTROUTING -t nat -j MASQUERADE -s &
up echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward &
up iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT &
down iptables -D POSTROUTING -t nat -j MASQUERADE -s &

as mentioned in:

After re-booting the debian box and connected my FR via USB, ifconfig -a shows:

usb0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 9A:99:92:BD:1A:34
          BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

and ping to returns nothing!

Your help is much appreciated!
