Front end for NAT in Linux?


Hello people,

I have two computers and I'd like to use the NAT in the first pc to share the internet connection (modem) to the other computer. Is there any front end that could help me creating rules for the NAT?

iptables http://www.iptables.org

If you want a graphical frontend to that then you could try one of the following:

http://freshmeat.net/projects/easytables
http://freshmeat.net/projects/bifrost-fw

Or just search around freshmeat or sourceforge for other projects.

Don't do it man!! I tried every frontend there is to configure iptables. They each hosed my system in different ways. Iptables is a little tricky at first, but trust me, do it yourself. I just finished writting my iptables script by hand and I learned way more and have a better firewall for it. We will help you along the way. Check out Netfilter.org and look at some good sample scripts. Then post here and we'll help you tame the wild netfilter..

if your looking for a nice linux based router distribution, ClarkConnect is excellent, I use it to manage everything from NAT to proxy, all through the web-based configuration

Hello people,

Thanks to all. I tried the WebMin with the module "Linux Firewall", what do you think about this? And about the others modules of webmin? And about the Multi Network Firewall - Mandrake Security?
