MEPIS as a gateway?


hy

I've got a Box with two NIC's.
LAN: 192.168.0.2 eth1
WAN: 192.168.1.2 eth0

I've got a modem 192.168.1.1 which is as the same time router.

My LAN as you can imagine is on the 192.168.0.0 subnet.

Well, my problem is that i have internet connection (outside)in my WAN and not in the LAN area.

this is what i did:
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -O eth0 -j MASQUERADE
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
modprobe iptable_nat

I setted up a DHCP for my LAN, but how to start it in MEPIS?

In fedora "service dhcpd start"
and " chkconfig --level 345 dhcpd on" if we want to boot the box and have the DHCPD running automatically.

Did i miss something?

Thanks

DHCP in Mepis 6.0

You can configure in mutilities or in console as root type

dhclient


to get to mutilities type

mutilities

in console as root.

OK thanks mdmarker.

Your commands work very well.

Now i would like to start the DHCPD (server) not the client, which means that my box will deliver IP's to other boxes.

Well i've already done the DHCPD script, now i would like to start it?

In fedora this is the command: (service dhcpd start)

Thanks again

The other think is that when i follow graphically this link below:
Kmenu - Network folders - Network services it says:

" The zeroconf daemon (mdnsd) is not running "

What does it mean mdnsd and how to open the network services, in GUI or in Console mode doesn't matter?

thanks guys
