I appreciate any help on this problem. I have done a good bit of
research and searching around, but now I'm more confused then ever.
With all the choices...
Anyway, here is my question... I used to have the following setup:
ISP (Cable Modem) <----> eth0 -[Proxy Server PC]- eth1 <---->
-[PC (fake ip)]
So I did have a Win95 system with a proxy server, routing all traffic
from two computers out 1 (of 2) ethernet adapters in the middle PC.
This worked fine. This is one kink to this system, my cable modem
appears to act a bit like a router. In will only allow traffic from ONE
ethernet adapter (using the MAC address) , so all IP traffic must end up
out one ethernet adapter.
Now I want to get rid of Windoze complety, and like to do the same thing
with Linux. Any suggestions? I have read a ton of different ways to do
it, Proxy, Routing, IP Forwarding.... I'm just not sure where to
start.. Should I recompile my kernel to enable IP-Forwarding? Has
anyone used Squid, Apache, or proxyrouted-090? Do you need to have IP
Forwarding on, if I configured my router table would the IP packets
cross network cards?
Thanks, for any help!!!
