Strange problem about iptables DNAT.


Hi,

I have a Linux box with RedHat 9.0 installed, this box is a firewall&proxy. Now I want external user can access my internal web server via the firewall box.

According to RedHat 9.0's manual and the posts in internet, I used the following command.

#iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p TCP -d xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx --dport 80 -j DNAT --to 192.168.0.5:80

But I can't access the internal web server.

use tcpdump to get the following packets:

21:57:18.274817 192.168.0.85.1331 > 218.77.120.200.25460: udp 49

21:58:18.987637 arp who-has 192.168.0.5 tell 192.168.0.222

As I said, this box is a proxy too, so the above packets maybe contain unuseful message to analysis where the problem is.

Anyway, anybody can help me?

thanks,

The rule seems to be ok on condition that earlier rules don't drop the packets.
But you need also a rules for forwarding the packets.

For instance:
iptables -A FORWARD -m state --state NEW -i $INT_IF -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
for forwarding the packets to internal box
and
iptables -A FORWARD -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
for forwarding packets from internal LAN boxes
