Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

- Static IP (219.93.225.x)
- connects to a switch that gives me DSL connection
- Internal IP (192.168.100.x)
- connects to a switch to my LAN
What i'm trying to achieve:
1. Let my LAN users access the server internally
2. Use the server to host my website
I would like to map watever request from NIC2 to NIC1 so that watever request is processed transparently to the users.
Since this is gona expose my LAN, i figured that i should have a firewall for security.
Is there any software on RH7.3 that allows me to do this? If yes, how?
Thanks in advance
Distribution: Red Hat 9.0/ Debian/ Solaris 9 (just trying out)
I think if you search the web, there is a HOWTO on masquerading. That is what you are looking for- a firewall that masquerades. I found one that has some configurable options in it, but there is no gui interface. Just a text file. I am also running 7.3, and my server hosts a website, as well as ssh logins from the internet. The internal network has free-flow.
PS I found that when using such a firewall, you do NOT start ipchains in the normal startup process.
i've managed to reconfigure my route to the original one (refer post #6 for my earlier route -n)....
but my external IP is still not working
i think i must've screwed up something in the midst of configuring iptables
any ideas? or where should i look to rectify this?
