View Full Version : Why won't IP Masquerading work

10-12-2003, 01:29 PM
I've been smashing my head against the wall for hours trying to figure this out. I've looked at about 10 tutorials and nothing i working even though I follow them to the letter.

Is there anyway I can do this easily or should I just can my Slackware gateway to be?

It seems to be that my eth1 isn't configured properly (NIC connected to my second internal PC via cross over) but since Slack doesn't use netcfg I'm not sure what to do.

Seems to be a problem with iptables but I have no idea what I'm doing. eth1 isn't setup correctly.
