Hello,

Please elaborate your question.

Make one system as router to forward the packets to external network and set following parameter to 1 in /etc/sysctl.conf file of routing server

Code:
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
Also set appropriate IPtable rules on router server to secure your Linux machines from external network.

Here are couple of tutorials which will come to your help.

Iptables Configuration
Setup Linux as router

You really haven't provided enough information so I suggest that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' so in the future your queries provide information that will aid us in diagnosis of the problem.

Just a few links to aid you to gaining some understanding;
Linux Documentation Project
Rute Tutorial & Exposition
Linux Command Guide
Utimate Linux Newbie Guide
LinuxSelfHelp
Getting Started with Linux
Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
Linux Home Networking

The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
