Port Forwarding on DSL??

I have just gotten DSL recently with SBC Yahoo and am only allow one public routable IP. (I'm not a Networking guru by any means)

I have a 2 Wire DSL modem/internal router connected to a Dlink 4 port switch. My main machine is running RH 8.0 and is on the public IP. I have a Laptop running XP that I want to be able to term serv to remotely however it has an IP of 172.16.1.x so I can. I'm aware that there is something called Netfilter that uses IPtables to foward specific ports to an internal NAT.

If anyone knows of a good tutorial (hold hand through type) or can give me any advice on how I can do this I would be really appreciative.

you simply want to be able to share your connection via this one machine? no problem. I personally use a program called Firestarter to set up this as well as giving a pretty good firewall as well. there are many other programs to do it though. or you can just do the actual forwarding bit in a couple of iptables commands (iptables (system program) uses netfilter (part of linux kernel)) which i believe are listed in the ip-masquardaing howto

Thanks for the help I'll check out Firestarter right now. I have the boxes sharing my DSL connection I just want to be able to foward certain ports to my Window$ machine so that I can stay term served into it will ssh'd into my Linux box remotely. I do alot of work away from my computer to test things on my network at work remotely. Thanks for the help and I'll read some more on iptables as I've never set this up before.

Thanks again!@
