problem: I have a linux box that i want to use as firewall for my Windows workstation. it has only one ethernet that is needed for the switch, but no pci expansion slots. So the only option to connect another machine to this one is through a USB cable, and the box to the net through the standard cat5 cable.
what is needed: while a usbnet driver is available for linux to push ethernet over usb, i dont know about windows. I found on wikipedia that there's a driver for winxp, called bahia network driver, but it's has been released in 2003.
the question: Is there a driver that is more recent and win-7 compatible?
update: i found this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7501313/connect-two-computers-via-usb
it seems it is fairly easy to link linux <-> linux over usb using the ethernet network protocol, but it does not say anything related to win <-> linux
