i choose not to use wifi for health reasons and so the only way i can access internet via my android tablet is using usb reverse tethering. i have successfully set this up in win7 as a test, using the specifically written tools for that purpose. this involved installing the developer firmware, usb-tunnel and superroot apps on the tablet.

now i am looking to configure fedora 21 to support reverse usb tethering and am stuck. i found this guide which may work, except that i am using firewallD and not IPTABLES, so am unable to complete the process:

does anyone know of a different way to do this? or a way to configure firewallD in a way that equates to the IPTABLES configuration that is listed in the tutorial above?
