I have a router-box on 192.168.1.1 and it forsees the entire network with internet.... The other PC's can happily surf/ftp/telnet, but the router itself can't ping. It CAN get on IRC but it can't access/ping google.com/debian.org (for example)... I need to have access to google from my router. HELP!
OS: Debian 3.0
IPtables/Netfilter: latest version
Kernel: latest version
Understanding text I used to enable the routing in IPtables (and it works like a charm) # Load the NAT module (this pulls in all the others).
# In the NAT table (-t nat), Append a rule (-A) after routing
# (POSTROUTING) for all packets going out ppp0 (-o ppp0) which says to
# MASQUERADE the connection (-j MASQUERADE).
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE
# Turn on IP forwarding
