    Hi to all,
    I have a small problem with ip forwarding.
    I have 1 X linux server with 2 network devices. I use Fedora Core 4.
    I have eth0 with the ip 89.34.xx.xx , gateway: 89.34.xx.xx and dns 89.34.xx.xx , eth1 and an IP class from 86.106.xx.0 to 86.106.xx.255.
    I want to make an ip forward through eth1 and connect a swich on it and then some computers and to give them IP's between 86.106.xx.1 and 86.106.xx.255 .
    Can someone tell me how to do this? I have triyed and searched on the internet but no success.
    Thank you all in advance.

    Here it is...
    [[email protected] ~]# cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
    I have deleted all the ipforward rules to make it work again and here is my iptables -L now

    [[email protected]sign ~]# iptables -L
    Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination

    That's a good question. :confused:
    doesn't work. It's for NAT, and NAT works only with private IP addresses, but 86.106.xx.xx are public IP addresses.

    Yes :)
    I triyed with a firewall "Firestarter" but no effect. I have read somme recomandations on some forums to use IpCop but from what i know it work's only with internal ip's (as 192.168.1.xx)
    I have made some changes in the last time.
    I have eth0 with the ip: 89.xx.209.254, dns 89.xx.208.2 / 89.xx.208.3 and gateway 89.xx.209.1 and i have added , like virtual interfaces the ip's from 86.xx.86.10 to 86.xx.106.255 on eth0 , so i can run psybnc's on them and other services.
    I have putted the IP 86.xx.86.1 on eth1 and leaved the IP's from 86.xx.106.2 to 86.xx.106.9 free to forward them and connect other computers on them.
    The bad thing is that i don't manage to make the forward.
    If is someone who has done this before or who can help me please help me.
    Thank you all,
