I'm wondering if I can add NAT to an Ad Hoc network, this is the setup:

router/server which only allows packets from 1 Mac address
connected to this router/server, laptop A with the correct mac address

connected to A, laptop B with its own mac adress, through Ad Hoc (wireless)

goal: adding NAT service to laptop A / ad hoc network so that laptop B can access the network (packets from laptop B will be encapsulated with mac from laptop A)

both laptops are windows XP

thought I found 'firestarter' as software, but this is unix only..

thx in advance!

So in easier terms, you want to spoof your laptops ips? or spoof the mac of laptop B so you don't have to ad hoc? Cause as an Ad Hoc connection the packets to and from Laptop B will already have Laptop A's Mac Address encapsulated within the packet...
