    Most people do not know about routing. One of the basic needs for this server in a small environment is to use this single Server to be an Internet gateway (Internet connection sharing, if you want to cal it that way).;)
    It would be relative painless to add a config option to identify the Internet interface and the local interface than setup the correct settings for the following in the preferred firewall. I say this because the setup proposed by ISPconfig disables the native firewall like Shorewall on Mandriva and whateverfirewall on others, only to install its own brand Bastille-firewall witch I presume is fine.:cool:

    The only settings inside bastille-firewall that need to be manages is the Prerouting DNAT and outside the /etc/sysctl.conf = net.ipv4.ip_forward=1

    Will make life extremely better for users as I see numerous routing questions on the forums.:)

    O-yeh, what an Awsome Solution this, combinded with the Perfect setup of your choice, is for anyone that does not fall in the LUNITIX category! :)
