(?) question on IP forwarding.

From Jessie Kom

Answered By Mike Orr

I have a RedHat Linux 6.2 machine. One of the network card (Eth0 eg. 192.168.10.1) is connected to my private network (consisting of a FTP server and 2 pc). Another network card (Eth1 eg. 203.173.161.*) is connected to the internet. How do I make my FTP server accessible from other pcs in the internet and make pcs in my private network access the internet?

(!) [Mike] Are you using kernel 2.2 or 2.4? 2.2 uses ipchains, 2.4 uses iptables.

(?) Hi,

I'm not sure, according to the RedHat site, it says 6.2 uses kernel 2.2.*, so I assumed mine is 2.2.*.

So how do I make use of ipchain?

With Best Regards, Jessie Kom


(?) Hi,

I've figured it out already! Thanks for helping anyway!

With Best Regards, Jessie Kom

... but for those of you loyal readers following along ...

(Hint: you need both IP Masquerading and IP forwarding configured, and the kernel options for those enabled.)
