I just got running a very beautifull redhat9 installation with everything the way i wanted it, ADSL setup and running like a beauty
I decided to try and share my ADSL connection with a windowsXP client on the network (192.168.0.2) - my internal IP is 192.168.0.3
I typed in these commands (okay not fully understanding what they do :P) from a tutorial,
now however, even though my ADSL modem is connected (apparently) i get "unknown host" whenever i try and do anything,
i think all the packets are being dropped/denied probably because of the daft rules i put in there..
can you say
anyway, it's teaching me humility but asides from that, i really dont want to reinstall again (have had to do that three times now due to this same thing - setting up IP masquerading)
now ive decided to boot into XP to see if someone here can help me with my problem (hopefully)
is there any way to flush the IPTables rules or disable Iptables (as a short term solution) or perhaps delete the rules I inputed and put in the correct ones?
