Azeez, what you need is not trite retorts from resident list
imbeciles (see Bill's response below), but rather to employ an
iptables firewall application/script. There are numerous available
to meet any need from simple to enterprise-capable. Firestarter,
Shorewall, and I believe there is a basic firewall configuration
utility in the distro. The web-based firewall gui in Webmin provides
a very simple rudimentary funtion for this. There are many others.
It might be as simple as:
        modprobe iptable_nat
        iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth1 -j MASQUERADE
        echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

but if you have to ask the question, you might be better off with one of
the appliance systems that do this for you along with a lot of other
things - like SME server or Clarkconnect.

Strange - I don't remember writing any of the text attributed to me.
Are you sure you got the quote correct Les?
Thunderbird did my quoting - and what I replied to (yours) did not have
any quoting on the parts now 3 levels deep.

Thunderbird may have done the quoting, but you did the trimming.
Strange how you managed to trim out all of the stuff I wrote. It
looks like you took a message that replied to one of mine, and
trimmed out the part from me. I would expect someone with your
claimed experience not to make a mistake like that. Or was it a mistake?
Do you see any quoting on the lines I included from here:

I think it was someone's line wrap issue, but it happened before I saw it.
