Newbie Firewall/Masq question

Post by Gary Ise » Tue, 19 Oct 1999 04:00:00

I'm using RedHat 6.0.  I have my LAN configured using eth0. Telnet and  FTP
and both working well.  I also have ppp0 configured on the Linux box. I'm
able to connect to my ISP using ifup ppp0. I have read various HOWTO's and
visited site but I'm uncertain
about which files to edit and create given my configuration. I'm not sure if
my ppp0 interface is using pump or dhcp. Do I need to setup one or the other
first and then setup an rc.firewall script? Any help would be greatly
