redhat server won't route thru firewall

redhat server won't route thru firewall

Post by Allen Walke » Thu, 08 Mar 2001 10:16:58



Ok here's the deal.. I have a linux box set up as a firewall:

eth0 x.136
eth1 x.137

table:

x.129   *       x.255  eth0
x.136   *       x.255  eth0
x.137   *       x.255  eth1
x.138   *       x.192  eth1  (my subnet)
127.0   *       255.0
default x.129   0.0     eth0

Ok now I have a linux host sitting inside the firewall:

Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt Iface
x.130           *               255.255.255.255 UH        0 0          0 eth0
x.128            *               255.255.255.192 U         0 0          0 eth0
127.0.0.0       *               255.0.0.0       U         0 0          0 lo
default         207.8.43.137    0.0.0.0         UG        0 0          0 eth0

THIS HOST WON'T WORK. I can pig all IP's on the LAN and it works fine.
Note: this is not
the firewall, b/c win boxes and another vanilla redhat 7.0 system will route
thru the firewall and can ping hosts on the internet. I have the firewall set
up to ACCEPT everything for now. It's just a router to the router pizza box
from our ISP.

The system is a vanilla 6.0 system upgraded to vanilla 6.2. I know this can
work.

BTW if plug this host DIRECTLY into the dumb pizza box router, it works (
assuming I change the default gw from .137 (the firewall) to .129 (the routers
address)

Any help appreciated.

1. How to browse internt thru' LAN's MS proxy server (also serving as firewall)

Hi,

Recently, I installed Redhat Linux 7.0 at my office computer.  Our intranet
uses all Microsoft stuff and all my collegues use windows boxes.

I could manage to connect my linux box to interal LAN successfully (also
could browse the network neighbourhood by using Samba server).  We have DHCP
server on our LAN.  So, I have used DHCP client protocal for my Linux box.  
So during login, I could automatically get private IP address, gateway, IP
address of internal DNS server correctly.  These things I confirmed by
checking relevant configuration files (like /etc/resolv.conf ,
/etc/sysconfig/network ...) in my linux box.

But, I can't get authenticated by our firewall ( ofcouse, in netscape, proxy
server options , I have enterned correct address of our internal firewall &
port). Another thing, I observed, if use "connect thru' proxy server option
in netscape, I can't even surf our INTRANET sites.  But if I change, options
to " direct connection to internet" in Netscape, I could surf the INTRANET
sites.

But same thing, If I do using Winnt system, I could successfully get
authenticated thru' our firewall to browse the internet.

We use MS proxy server 2.0.  Another interesting thing I observated is :  
When I use WINNT system & start IE5.5 for internet browsing, during
authentication process, there are 3 feilds displayed

field#1 : username
field#2 : password
field#3 : domainname

But , When I use my Linux box & start Netscape 4.75, during authentication
process, only first two fields are displayed. I don't know why.  Is this
creating problem..

Could anybody help me, why I am not able connect my Linux box to internet
thru MS proxy server.

thanx in advance.
