Can I connect a 2nd computer to the internet via my 2nd ethernet port?

My computer has two ethernet ports. One is connected to the internet via a router. Can I connect a visiting friend's computer to my 2nd ethernet port to share my internet connection? Running another cable to the router would involve drilling through a floor and purchasing a very long cable, which I would like to avoid.
