: Hi. I have Redhat Linux 5.1 and I was wondering how I could setup my
: Linux machine as a gateway, without using ip masquerading. My Linux
: machine has to network cards.
: ETH0 has an IP of 126.96.36.199
: ETH1 has an IP of 192.168.64.125
: ETH0 has a direct connection to the net, using a default gateway of
: 188.8.131.52. I was wondering, how I could forward packets from
: 192.168.64.125 to 184.108.40.206, so my other machines could get on the
: net. The reason why I want to do this, is because I can't play Quake on
: Heat.net with masquerading enabled. I've also used the ip_masq_quake
: module, but that didn't help, because it only allows packets to travel
: through UDP port 26000, and heat uses 8000-9000. Thanks a lot.

I need to setup a connection between a private LAN and the Internet and
have been monitoring this news group to see whats up. I need the
ability to browse the web and send/receive e-mail. It looks like there
are two ways (maybe more) to accomplish this. One could use network
address translation and port forwarding via Linux ipchains. One could
also setup a cacheing proxy, Squid comes to mind, and mail server, via
sendmail/fetchmail. What I would like to know is what are the pros and
cons of each approach? Some things that I would consider are:
Thanks for any replys!
