Internet through the serial port

5. Internet through the serial port

Suppose you have a laptop and you want to access the internet occasionally. Also suppose you have a machine that has an ethernet connection and a serial port. You can set the laptop up as a client, the other machine as a server, and use IP masquerading to connect to the internet through the null modem cable. Check the IP-Masquerading-Howto for help on how to do this.
