: Well, first things first. Is IP Forwarding compiled into the kernel and
: configured properly? Also, unless you have an assigned IP address for your
: win95 machine *that your ISP know about and will route to* you'll need to
: set up IP Masquarading as well.
Actually, if you use SOCKS, you don't need IP forwarding, nor do you need
for your ISP to know about any of the machines you've got* off
your connection. You need *one* IP address for the Linux box - that's
all. Any other boxes you have hung off that you can give 192.168.XXX.XXX
addresses (or similar) - there's a list of IP addresses that anyone can
use, in an RFC somewhere.
I hide three machines behind one Linux server that is connected to the
Internet. My ISP only knows (or cares about) that one that he's assigned
an IP address to. The other three machines use SOCKSified clients
(Netscape browsers, telnet, etc.) and they work just fine.
Of course, the connection to the outsie world gets a little slow at
times, but that's what I get for not being ruthless enough to be able to
avoid a personal T1 to the net ;)
