I have a Linux box (kernel 1.2.13) that is my: mail host, news host, web
server, ftp server, etc. I'm using a SDL N2csu card to connect to the
internet (through BBN Planet) and a 3C509 to talk to my net. The N2csu is my
router hardware and CSU/DSU, while Linux is my router software. Everything
works *except* that when I try to send news articles out, using nntpsend, I
get this message from my news provider:
502 You have no permission to talk. Goodbye.
According to my news provider (BBN Planet) I am sending the IP address of the
router (the CSU/DSU card) instead of the IP address for the news host (the
same IP address of the 3Com card). How do I get nntpsend to use the right
IP address? Or is the problem more basic than that? A tech at BBN said that
I need to change my filter table on my router, but since the router is the PC
running Linux I need to change it there. But I can't find documentation about
filter tables. And a tech from SDL (the board manuf) mentioned something
about gated and routed.
Am I the only person on the planet using a Linux PC as router and host?
