Coyote Linux router anyone?
I'd like to use a p2p client so I need to forward a port to my client machine. My router assigns addresses via DHCP. I can add a rule to the ipchains, save it, back up to floppy no problem BUT it is necessary to reboot in order for the new rule to take effect. If I reboot though then my client machine will have a different address therefor my new ipchains rule is forwarding to the wrong client. It is entirely possible to make these changes without rebooting but I don't remember how and unfortunately the FAQ is gone. It's possible that I'm totally out in left field on this one but any assistance would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
