Has anyone had a chance to look at this?

Hi Robert,
You don't give detail of what you do except:

3.set up internet sharing

However, there is some choices during this phase. 
Have you stop the firewall?

I use the "Mageia control center > Share the internet connections with other machines" and follow the prompts the same since Mageia 1. The only 2 decisions I have to make are which network card is the internet and to use squid or not.

I have tried changing  the setting but nothing works. 
Yes I even tried turning off the firewall

Here we go again. Now it Mageia 8 RC and internet sharing still doesn't work. Now after a short time even the dhcp server for Mageia 8 quits. I use start_NAT_fw I found in the forums to get internet sharing for Mageia 7 and now 8. At least 7 it doesn't quit after a couple of hours. This make Mageia 8 unusable as a server/firewall because of these problems.
