you need:
iptables,
2.4 kernel,
and firewall http://monmotha.mplug.org/~monmotha/...firewall-2.3.8
configure this firewall in text editor : vim,pico etc.
then put in to /etc/rc.d/
chmod +x rc.firewall
./rc.firewall

you have internet connection sharing ! if configuration right !

example:
# Main Options
IPTABLES="/usr/sbin/iptables"
TCP_ALLOW="113 22 80"
UDP_ALLOW=""
INET_IFACE="eth0"
LAN_IFACE="eth1"
INTERNAL_LAN="192.168.2.0/24"
MASQ_LAN="192.168.2.0/24"
SNAT_LAN=""
DROP="TREJECT"
DENY_ALL=""
DENY_HOSTWISE_TCP=""
DENY_HOSTWISE_UDP=""
BLACKHOLE=""
BLACKHOLE_DROP="DROP"
ALLOW_HOSTWISE_TCP=""
ALLOW_HOSTWISE_UDP=""
TCP_FW=""
UDP_FW=""
MANGLE_TOS_OPTIMIZE="FALSE"
DHCP_SERVER="FALSE"
BAD_ICMP="5 9 10 15 16 17 18"
ENABLE="Y"
................................. and etc.....
