Reason: missing words
IP forwarding does not happen in iptables. iptables is only a packet inspecting subsystem. First answer, if your clients have valid ip address why do you want to use a linux box as a gateway? Second, if you want to do so you need some setting on your box and some setting on your provider gateway, it means that provider should route all packets of your class to your gateway and vice versa (i.e. they should set your gateway address as default gateway for your subnet.) it is better that set a pair of none valid ip address on your gateway and peer gateway only for routing purpose.
Your previous post also marked urgent. You were politely asked not to mark thread as urgent and yet you persist. This is extremely rude. Please do not mark thread urgent - they are not urgent to other users here.
