Coyote Linux router anyone?

I'd like to use a p2p client so I need to forward a port to my client machine. My router assigns addresses via DHCP. I can add a rule to the ipchains, save it, back up to floppy no problem BUT it is necessary to reboot in order for the new rule to take effect. If I reboot though then my client machine will have a different address therefor my new ipchains rule is forwarding to the wrong client. It is entirely possible to make these changes without rebooting but I don't remember how and unfortunately the FAQ is gone. It's possible that I'm totally out in left field on this one but any assistance would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Very close actually frieza. I got the answer on the same post in the Coyote Linux forums, it just took a while.

The '-F' command is 'Flush'
ipchains -F
ipmasqadm autofw -F

Then rerun the scripts:

cd /etc/rc.d

Thanks for taking an interest. I'm now working on a bootable cd router distro and trying to add the LCD driver as well.
