I'm trying to set up reverse-tethering from my Linux computer using the steps outlined in this post:

Mathieu Carbou Photography Blog

However, when I get to the last step, "netcfg usb0 dhcp" hangs and/or times out. (It does not return a 'permission denied' error).

I'm running Cyanogenmod on a (rooted) Incredible, so I'm not sure what the problem is.


Found the following on How to get internet on your phone via USB | forum.xda-developers.com

It is working now. After setting up ICS type in console emulator on your phone:

ifconfig usb1 netmask up
route add default gw dev usb0
iptables -F
iptables -F -t nat
setprop net.dns1
setprop "net.gprs.http-proxy" ""
