configuring router in linux

by magellanix In reply to configuring router in lin ...

Let me make the picture clear first.

You have a linux box with 2 network cards, 1 is connected to a hub (layer 2 device) and the other to another workstation.

If you want the 2nd (the one connected network card to be able to communicate with the 1st network card (the one connected to the hub) you must enable IP fowarding for that device.

http://www.tldp.org/LDP/nag2/x-087-2-masq.configuration.html [tldp.org] has a detailed information to help you out.

As a RH user my self, I found his document: Securing & Optimizing Linux: The ultimate solution, http://www.tldp.org/guides.html very very useful.

Hope that helps. Cheers
