iptables and NAT


Hi,
I have done some work on Linux iptables using filter table but for NAT using (PREROUTING,POSTROUTING and OUTPUT )i have search from google but does't find any good link to study it and implement on my two linux base machines on LAN.

Kindly guide me some examples for NAT using iptables or any informative web site from where a new linux user can understand to implement nat.
thanks
mypass

NAT is also known as masquerading.

See:
The IP Masquerade HOWTO at the Linux Documentation Project.

Hi,

iptable is part of the netfilter framework.
You could look at this tutorial http://www.frozentux.net/documents/iptables-tutorial/ which gives precise examples on how to configure NAT with iptables,
or any other pointed by http://www.netfilter.org/documentati...entation-howto

Hope this helps.
J.
