How to I let traffic flow?

I can't remember what file I'm supposed to edit to let traffic go through me. Can I please have a friendly reminder?

Metamucil, oats and raisins?

Seriously though - are you referring to routing IPv4 traffic through your linux boxen? If so, then 'man iptables' to get you started.

I know under redhat/centos and maybe debian based look for the file /etc/sysctl.conf. In the file look for "net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0" change from 0 to 1. You will still need to look a iptables but this should help you getting started.
