View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wired Bridge Question

October 12th, 2011, 07:40 AM
Please forgive me, but I am verry new to the linux world and trying to learn every day....

I took an old Dell Laptop and installed Ubuntu 11.xx on it to try to learn more about the linux world. In the mean time i became the owner of a dell deminsion desktop that i have turned into a media box with WinXP. The XP box does not have a wireless connection so I turned the eth0 into a sharing port and plugged it in so that the two machines could share one wireless connection.

Works great except that I can not get any torrents applications to do anything on the XP box.. they just sit their and i cant see any peers on their. Is their something i am doing wrong or not turning on in the Ubuntu system to get the XP machine to see the torrents...
