Can I turn my box into a "Hub" with 2 network Cards??

I need to route between my 2 network cards (On Mandrake) so I can use it as a "hub".<------>

[ :]


There are 3 computers, I want to have the 3rd computer (XP 0.77) use the 1st computer's (XP 0.1) internet connection via the linuxbox with the 2 network cards (0.8 & 0.9)

They will act as a "hub", but I also want to access the linux machine from the 3rd Computer (0.77).

What do you call this?

And how do you do it?

Any help would be appreciated,

Kind regards

yes it's martinman is correct about iptables manipulation, although i think the term you are looking for is 'router'
