Panther Internet Sharing
Subject:   Airport Sharing worked in Jaguar, broke in Panther

Given that I've found this article, I'm assuming my problem is local, but since I'm casting about, I figure I'll see if anyone has info...

I was happily sharing my internet connection from my tower (a 400MHz G4) to my laptop (1GHz 17" Powerbook) when I had Jaguar installed on both, and continued to share with no problems after upgrading the laptop to Panther. However, since I upgraded the tower to Panther, I now have serious problems when I turn on Internet sharing over Airport. When I turn it on, my ethernet TCP/IP connection drops, and I can't even get it back by turning off internet sharing. I have to reboot the machine to get it back.

Any troubleshooting hints greatly appreciated...

    Have you installed any anti spyware products like little snitch? That was breaking my natd stuff without alerting me to the fact. I got some clues in the console log:
    Jan 21 11:44:38 superComputerRobot natd[6164]: failed to write packet back (No route to host)
    Jan 21 11:45:09 superComputerRobot last message repeated 11 times

    You can get to that via the system profiler: apple menu>about this mac>more info> logs

    that might give you some clues
