Bug Description

I have two PC's running 10.10. One is connected to the internet via a residential wireless gateway. I would like to share that connection with a second PC via ethernet (wired) network adapters. When I used windows it was called a network bridge...

If you try and share using the GUI the applet crashes and you have no way of connecting. Unless a person is very good with the CLI they have one choice at this point: Wipe the hard drive clean and start over.
Applet needs fixed; or a different one should be packaged with 10.10
