Sorry about the double post, but something went wrong. I post via the
groups.google.com and I can't see what I've posted and the previous
msg was not yet completed. It was not intended to double post this.

I have a small homenetwork, consisting of 3 pc's; 1 running Red Hat
linux, and the other two are running WinME. I did a clean install the
server and the networkadapters installed fine.
Adapter eth0 is connected to the outside using DHCP and eth1 is
connected to my internal network. After the clean install I could ping
to the outside and the my internal network.
I only added the following simple ipchains rules.
ipchains -P forward DENY
ipchains -A forward -j MASQ -s 192.168.1.0/24 -d 0.0.0.0/0
and set the Windows machines to use these settings
IP : 192.168.1.2 (.3 for the other machine)
Subnetmask : 255.255.255.0
Gateway : 192.168.1.1 (server ip)
DNS enables and is using my ISP nameservers
From windows I now can ping the server and the other window machine,
but I can't get outside. Can't ping the nameserver or anything else. I
had this same setup working before with other computers. So probably
I'm overlooking a small (read crucial :) detail.
I hope someone could help me with this cause I'm all out of clues.
Thanks in advance.
