Re: [vox-tech] Linux as gateway

Hash: SHA1

Thanks for the hint. I run tcpdump -i eth(outside) src internal-
machine-ip, and ping external ip address of gateway, tcpdump
capture nothing. but if I ping other external ip address, tcpdump
capture icmp echo packages. So what's the possible problem here?

Also, if I run tcpdump -i eth(inside) ip proto \\icmp, and ping
from internal machine to internal ip, external ip of gateway,
tcpdump capture both packages. If I ping other external ip address,
tcpdump capture the icmp echo from internal machine to external
machine, but no reply.

Actually I'm trying to do some Masquerade things, but whatever
sample scripts I tried, I always could not ping outside net from
internal net. So I decide to do the simplest at first - no masquerade,
but gateway. However, it still does not work. :-((((
