    So I'm trying to share my Ethernet Connection (which uses an PAP protocol) via my Macbook with a firewire connection...
    I just can't seem to get it to work. However, if I connect via Airport and share that Airport connection via Firewire it works perfectly. Any one have an idea how to do it?

    BTW. All connections are set to DHCP. I can't change the Ethernet connection to static because then that connection would not work. If I change the firewire connection to static it then screws my ethernet connection up (it assumes then that the firewire connection is my internet source).

    Thanks in advance!

    Please provide more details. (What happens when you try to use Firewire sharing?) Are you using the "Sharing" subapp of System Prefs?
