Following the instructions on the wiki, I did the following after
connecting my  Freerunner

iptables -A POSTROUTING -t nat -j MASQUERADE -s
sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
ifconfig usb0

However, I can't SSH in to the Freerunner. I can't even ping it (it
says 'ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted' )

Please note that usb0 shows up when i try 'ifconfig'.

I am using Ubuntu Hardy 64-bit edition.
