when i check ip forwarding:
cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward it returns 1.
any help, please?
Presumably you typed the echo command wrong.. should involve a '>'... seems to work tho..
You need to set up IP masquarading with ip chains. My rc.local file contains...
/sbin/ipchains -A forward -i ppp0 -j MASQ
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
under RH71. You should also be able to permanently enable ip forwarding by setting the parameter in /etc/sysctl.conf instead of the using the echo command.
Sorted, respect due!
