I was *almost* able to create a hotspot on my GoboLinux laptop to serve wifi to my Android phone using this tutorial, but I keep getting "Connected, no internet" on the phone. Avoiding learning iptables over the last 20 years finally took its toll.


@hisham_hm When I'm where you are, what I do is start "ping" on the phone and then go and "tcpdump -i <interface>" on each "side" of the laptop forwarding to see what (if anything) is going on.

In your case I suspect you forgot ipv4/6 forwarding sysctl?
