Slack 9.1 as router/gateway and PPPoE
Hello...I have some questions that I need answers to..and what better place to ask them then this. So, here goes..
I'm trying to build me a linux router/gateway machine for my home network. I've install Slack 9.1 on it and here it stops. My setup will be sort of weird since I wan't my lan router to use eth1 and I won't another computer hooked up to eth2. Now I need to make eth0 use PPPoE and have no idea how to do it.
I read a lot of documents and somwhere it said that the 2.4 kernels have built in PPPoE support.. Should I use this or go with RP-PPPoE? Can dynamic IP be a problem for linux router/gateway machine that also does MASQ functions??
Oh and another qquestion? Is iptables ready to use on a fresh install of Slack or must I do stuff in order to get it runing?
Must I recompile the kernle in order to enable masq functions?
Any info on the subject would be greaty appreciated..
Best regards and thanks for your time...
