I am setting up a gateway so that i can access the net from any of my other machines by plugging into my hub. I am having some problems and would appreciate ANY help you can give me.

Here's my setup :

Gateway Machine
eth0 192.168.0.1 (for internal use)
eth1 DHCP (for external use)
Laptop
eth0 192.168.0.3

Here's my problem :

The gateway machine works just fine for accessing the internet (though it seems to take a while sometimes to realize that it is connected and to lookup an host). The problem is when I plug in my laptop to the hub and try to ping the gateway machine, I get 1 successful packet and the rest are errors. When I ping (pung?) in the opposite direction, I received mixed results depending on how i had the gateway configured at the time (0 success, 1 success, seemingly all success). I have no idea how I screwed this one up. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Okay... I have a little more information. From my gateway machine, I can ping my laptop with no lost packets. BUT, from my laptop I am still getting the 1 accepted packet and the rest are errors. The funny thing is, I did a tcpdump on both machines while I pinged and I was getting replies from the gateway machine for EVERY packet, yet ping was not showing any good packets? WHY???

What was the solution to your original problem?

IPmasq is not difficult to setup...
