iptables allowing all LAN traffic


What would be the proper rule that would allow iptables to let all LAN traffic to pass through? I am running RH9 and using a Linksys G wireless router.

you can

iptables -A INPUT -i eth1 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A OUTPUT -o eth1 -j ACCEPT

where eth1 is generally the LAN interface. These are very liberal rules.
