Re: Where and how to install D02HW in ConnectionManager?

Whoops. Sorry I got confused about the name of NetworkManager again.
That's my problem with generic names that have synonyms... Easy to
switch words.

My understanding is that the D02HW is not really a proper CDMA, but
somehow this is required by the way eMobile has configured their
network in Japan. I did initially attempt to use the #777 number,
but that didn't work.

Now I am stuck on the connection sharing part. It seems that I must
install and configure the dhcp-server now. I was hoping that
NetworkManager would handle that automatically when I said I wanted
to share the wired network side. The dhcp-server conf file is pretty
hairy to mess with. I'm not even sure I copied the correct stub file
into the correct directory... Can you (or anyone else) point me at a
good URL for doing this with the current version of Ubuntu? I spent
some time on it last night, but didn't make much progress. That
included searching in the archives of this mailing list.
