Please find correction below.....
There are 2 solutions apart from iptables:
1. Hardware solution: Buy a hub (~ Rs. 600 for 8 port I think - dont remember exactly but very cheap) and connect both machines to this. You will have to set them to DHCP and they will get LAN IPs from hub. This way you can add more machines and also will not have issues with any protocol.
You can also buy a wireless router which you can plug either to your BSNL modem or the (new) hub - that will give you wireless internet.
I have BSNL in my house and they have given me a wireless router - we use 2 laptops(wifi) and a desktop(Lan cable) in our house.
Correction: You don't get the LAN IPs from hub - what I meant was that you will get the IPs from modem but connecting via hub is equivalent to connecting directly to modem.
