Networking Question


I have a Linux RH7.3 system acting as a firewall and masq for some windows machines. The connection to the internet is by ppp0. I have a samba server running on the linux box and i can c the shares from the windows box. I have added another network card to the Linux box so i can connect up a wireless AP. I have forwarding from eth0 to eth1 working. Forwarding from eth0 to eth1 working--I think. Currently I have only one Windows machine running so i can't prove this for myself. I want to know is will I b able to c all networked computers on both the home network and eventually the wireless network from the windows comps? (icons under My Network) Does IPforwarding allow u to do this???

Also is IPtables the best thing to use?

ATM the AP side can't access the Internet thru the linux box--which is what i want to happen.

Linux-------------Internet via ppp0
AP----Future Comps
