OK, I stopped being lazy and did some googling, and here's what I have
so far. It should work as long as you're not on a network using
192.168.0.x addresses. I still have to enter "route add -host
192.168.0.202/32 dev usb0" in a terminal to get around that, but other
than that this should make everything automatic.
If anyone confirms that this works (or doesn't work), please reply.
I've been changing a lot of settings, so there might be something
missing, but it seems to work.
OK, short version:
YaST -> Network Devices -> Network Settings -> Overview -> Add -> Address
Under "IP Address" enter "192.168.0.200"
Under "Subnet Mask" enter "255.255.255.0"
-> General -> Firewall Zone -- Assign Interface to Firewall Zone ->
Internal Zone (Unprotected)
Click "Next", which takes you back to:
YaST -> Network Devices -> Network Settings -> Global Options ->
Traditional Method with ifup
YaST -> Network Devices -> Network Settings -> Routing -> Enable IP
YaST -> Firewall -> Masquerading -> Masquerade Networks
With any luck, that should do it.
YaST Control Center -> Network Devices -> Network Card (openSUSE 11.0)
YaST Control Center -> Network Devices -> Network Settings (openSUSE 10.3)
In the Overview tab click "Add".
Under the Address tab click "Statically assigned IP Address"
Still under the Address tab, in the "IP Address" field enter
"192.168.0.200", and in the "Subnet Mask" field enter "255.255.255.0".
Under the "General" tab, where it says "Firewall Zone -- Assign
Interface to Firewall Zone", choose "Internal Zone (Unprotected)".
Still in Network Settings, under the Global Options tab, make sure
"Traditional Method with ifup" is selected (if you want to use
NetworkManager, you'll have to figure it out yourself since the webpage
I got this from assumes otherwise
Still in Network Settings, under the Routing tab, select "Enable IP
Open YaST Control Center -> Firewall -> Masquerading
Select "Masquerade Networks" and click Next, then Finish.
Thanks to Stroller for the tip on what to google for. Hopefully this
will work. I'll try it on my office computer tomorrow.
