It's not that complicated really.

Quote:
If you run Mandrake Control Center (mcc), and click on Security, you should have several options and 2 of the options are Firewall and Router.

Click on the Router option and you will supply which nic is internal lan and which is internet, it's that easy.

Click on Firewall and you will be able to open/close ports. Thats also quite easy.
From:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...22#post1366222

(But I did read, " If you have dial-up, a cable modem, or DSL or ISDN, you're all set. If you have multiple outgoing connections or multiple internal networks, however, you're in trouble. Mandrake's wizard is only configured to deal with one Internet connection and one local connection."
from:
http://www.unixreview.com/documents/...0113/0202i.htm)

Another option is you can flush out your rules at boot and install a new script to run at boot. e.g:
http://www.shorewall.net/ - maybe?

sounds to me like you need to do some reading
and this is a good place to start

hope this helps

edit
BTW have looked through this thread
and I may have missed it
but what distrobution are you using for your
gateway / router
It seems to me that you might have had a lot less trouble
using IPCop or Smoothwall etc
which are dedicated to this task
and have guis / control panels
specially setup to do what you are trying to do

And here I am looking at your distro, " Distribution: Mandrake 10".
Oh well. Close enough.

I feel like a right prat
I completely forgot about that. I use Mandrake on my 'normal' computers, which is why it says that.

Exclamation ever solved?

Did you ever get this working? If so how? I am having a very similar problem and not getting any help.

Thanks,

Tony

I'm sorry to say it, but I'm afraid not. I think the best option is to get a wireless access point and Smoothwall. That's what I had to do in the end!
