Re: [vox-tech] iptables

Here's the quick and dirty script I use:

# Netfilter script to initiate nat
modprobe iptable_nat
iptables -t nat -F POSTROUTING
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -s -j MASQUERADE
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

This script is from debian on a 2.4.19 kernel.  I just installed it either
last week, or the week before.

For the port allows, I wish I had kept my old script, because it firewalled,
everything cept, HTTP, SSH, and whatever port NWN uses(Cant remember off the
top of my head.)  You know there is an IPCHAINS compatibility module:

Just set it in make menuconfig, or make xconfig, and do a modules
compile/install.  Now that's only if you make your own kernel, however it
very well could be in whatever default redhat has.

Once I retighten down my config, Ill post the relevant iptables script.
