Linux Router


I'm using Redhat 9.0. I want to make my linux system as a router to route data with 3 or more network. How can I do it? Can anybody help me!

Thanks,

Debabrata

Assuming no NAT needs to take place, enable ip forwarding:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

then add routes to the routing table: ~$man route

That would be a bad idea, that is a very old distro, which likely has many unpatched vulnerabilities, not a good thing for a router which would be exposed to an open internet connection. You should use one of the current distros that are already setup to be a router.

This is the most complete listing of router distributions that I have seen.
