I have a strange problem with using IP Masq. The
Linux box (Slackware 7) is set up as a gateway to
a DSL connection. I've gone over (and over) the
howto's/FAQ's, and the setup appears fine, but
the problem persists...
I can ping and telnet to the world from all the
Masq'd computers, but can't get to any web or ftp
sites, not even when sitting at the gateway
machine using lynx.
From all the testing/FAQ's I've read, it seems
that if ping and telnet work, so should http &
ftp. Is that correct? If so, then it doesn't
matter what modules I have loaded, right?
Is there a separate module for http?
I'm using ipfwadm rather than ipchains, because I
didn't realize at the time that ipchains is the
way to go for kernel 2.2.x. I'll change that
tonight, but I don't see why that would matter.
Anyway, this is my first attempt at setting up a
gateway like this, so it quite possible that I'm
missing something really silly.
If any of you can get me pointed in the right
direction, I'd really appreciate it!
