Be sure to set your desktop to enable ip forwarding,
and if you have a firewall enabled on y our desktop,
be sure to add a rule to allow packets to/from your USB
interface. Also, your main interface should NAT packets
from your USB interface, otherwise, your will not be
able to connect your phone to the public net.
