OK I got my Raspberry working OK on the TV but sometimes I want to use my Raspberry out of the house, e.g. I.d like to use my Raspberry on the train thru my laptop.
Now to achieve this I bought a 6" USB cable for power and made up a 6" ethernet cable so now I'm typing on my laptop with the raspberry attached.
To get access to my Raspberry currently I gave it a fixed IP address which I put in my windows host file, enabled sshd on the PI and installed a handy app on my laptop called MobaXterm. So I can ssh to pi@raspberry and get a terminal session that I can start gui apps like xclock gparted etc from which is all well and good.
Now on my windows laptop I have virtualbox installed with various linux images and without me having to do anything really when I installed virtual box it seems to have configured a virtual nic and IP forwarding so I can access the net from these virtual images. Now what I want to do is the same thing from my raspberry.
So I have the raspberry on o private network including only 2 devices, laptop and Raspberry, and I have the laptop connected through wifi to a router or to the internet though a mobile internet usb stick.
I want to configure my PC to forward traffic between the Raspberry and the Net.
Anyone know best way to do this other than running a linux laptop. This obviously involves work on the laptop not the Raspberry. Networking and Microsoft products arent my strong points.
