So I'm definitely not the best nix person in the world, but I can follow directions pretty well and get by. Basically I'm trying to setup USB networking from my Nokia to a Windows Server 2003 machine. I can get connected fine via a static IP address on both the Windows box and the 770. They ping each other merrily. I'd like to take things to the next step and go out to the internet now. I can't use Internet Connection Sharing on the 2003 box because it forces you to use a 192.168.0 address, which is not going to work. So, I'm trying to bridge the USB network with my LAN and have the 770 get an IP via DHCP. I've done the same with a WIFI dongle and WLAN on the 770 so I know it's possible, but I can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong via USB.
I'm doing the following:
(on the 770)
plug in usb cable
ifconfig shows no ip address assigned
My interfaces file reads:
iface usb0 inet dhcp
Anyone got any ideas? Or some advice to not even waste my time?
