If i understand you correctly you want your server to act as a router for your internel network. echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward. But you shuld really Google "centos router"

To expand on seeberg's post a bit. http://www.howtoforge.com/internet-c...ading-on-linux

I forget the name but there is a way to do it also with nat and a way to set it up for two nic's to share traffic. I have a hard time finding it in windows and can never find it in linux.

There might be more than a few ways too.

Accept ip forwarding like seeberg said,
Quote:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
You must have two Ethernet cards an external one to receive internet and an internal one to distribute it.
Configure eth0
Configure eth1

Flash iptable rules and put new rules

visit www.youtube.com for videos on how to nat.
