    Having some difficulties getting Internet Sharing (from WiFi/en1 to Ethernet/en0) working in the same fashion 10.6 client can provide.

    My internet router already has a DNS and DHCP Server (addr: 192.168.1.x).

    I have my Mac Mini using the router DHCP w/ manual addr through en1.

    Now I'd like to share another peripheral via en0 on my Mac Mini.

    Ran the server NAT assistant, and I've enabled the DHCP and NAT service (disabling DNS, and firewall).

    Oddly enough (other than it nuking the internet connection on the server), it configures the en0 device (IP:, Subnet:, and Router But when I perform this through the client build, en0 just shows a loopback address with subnet Even so, the server address my peripheral as 192.168.1.x, not 192.168.2.x (as the working client would of).

    Could somebody show me the steps just to setup the "share" on my server as if I checked the "Internet Sharing" on the client build. Thanks!
