Transparent redirection


Hello forum:

Can anyone help me with this problem?
This is my network layout:


          Linux
          (ppp0)
DSL ---> | eth0 |
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;| eth1 | <--- SWITCH ---->| M$Win1 |
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbs p;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; \__> | M$Win2 |


The IP adresses are:
ppp0: Dynamic
eth0: 192.168.1.100
eth1: 192.168.0.100
M$Win1: 192.168.0.1
M$Win2: 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask:255.255.255.0

The question is: How to perform transparent redirection of all packets on network, so that the M$Win machines may get Internet access throughout the Linux machine, as like as a Hardware Router. I don't want, at first, any kind of security, proxy, etc.
The M$Win machines have to use Firefox and Thunderbird, as such as, if they could have direct Internet connection.
What configuration does Linux need? And, the M$Win machines?
Thanks in advance,

Hugo

Look into setting up NAT using iptables.

Thanks David,

I tried to use iptables unsuccessfully. The M$Win machines, never saw the WAN. Although they can do ping locally.
By the way, do you have any iptables example script to do it?
I'm newbie in iptables and all that stuff.
Thanks again.

Check out this howto: http://www.netfilter.org/documentati...OWTO.html#toc6

It also reasonably applies to 2.6 kernels. You might also want to check out the 'firestarter' package as a GUI firewall manager, if running a GUI on that machine.
