i set ip_forward=1 and iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE. eth0 is connected to the internet and eth1 to the other FC3. i can ping and able to set-up NFS sharing, but not internet sharing. the client FC3 eth0 gateway is set to both FC3 are connected via cross-over cable.
my problem is that i did read a few HOW-TO and followed them with all the little variations in them and nothing worked that's why i asked if someobe did set-up FC3 as a router.

need dns

dear r u using dsl ? am i true
if it is true then
try these on command
echo '1' > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
/sbin/iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
/sbin/iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -p all -s -d -j MASQUERADE
now for permanent saving
write all these on rc.local (/etc/rc.d/rc.local) file

another things is that you need gateway + dns
if only enter the gateway and dont enter the dns then internet sharing will not enable

if u get success then reply me
