Accessing An External VPN Server from NAT'd Network


My dad want's to connect to his VPN server at Work, from his Dell on my Linux NAT'd network.

It doesn't work though.

So, I'm assuming I need to forward ports, and whatnot.

Can someone please tell me what I need to forward, and the command req'd to do so?

well, to forward ports in iptables you would use DNAT:

iptables -A PREROUTING -t nat -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT -to

this example says: any incomming bound for port 80, send it to private ip ..... oh, protocol = tcp.
