Aole: Ok, I've enabled Internet Sharing from System Preferences but stills a problem. My Internet Connection is provided by Wlan, when I attached the network cable, Finder uses only cable connection. I knew that is a problem of interfaces's priority, but if I change the priority of Ethernet Interface in System Preferecens placing in the top of the list Airport, the problem remains.

So what about interfaces's priority ? Suggestions ?


Heliode: Just thinking out loud: people have managed to install System Preferences.app. Couldn't internet sharing be enabled from this? btw, not sure if you already are, but you should really try fseventer to gather information on what changes are made on the file system when you enable internet sharing.

Uh, unless I'm really confused, WebDav is not at all the same thing as Internet Sharing. Internet Sharing would enable the Apple TV to share its Ethernet connection to wireless clients, or vice versa, as a bridge from wireless to Ethernet.

-- In Mac OS X System Preferences, the Sharing icon presents a variety of things. The main tab, "Services," turns on AFP, SMB, WWW, FTP, Etc, while the "Internet" sharing tab offers one button "Internet Sharing," which sets up routing, NAT and DHCP automatically, turning the device into an ultra simple router.

proxy server

prasys: How about setting up a proxy server or squid with it. I mean , it will be nice to create a sort of envoriment for the rest of the folks. I know 256MB of RAM is not enough , but then if you have 3-4 computers it will be handy !
