IPAUTOFW problems (help me please.)
Posted on 1998-09-03
**NEWS FLASH** I'm pretty sure I'm using the WRONG program for this, question now concerns IPPORTFW... see comments below... thank you.
I'm trying to get the IPAUTOFW program to forward certain ports on the firewalling machine to ones inside the firewall. I have compiled linux with IP Forwarding on (enabled in etc/sysconfig/network), masquerading on, IPAUTOFW support on. Basically I turned most of the networking tabs on.
The firewall is working now, I can http/ftp/whatever out of it and get information back, but the ipautofw program just will not work. Here's the commands I used for both ipfwadm and ipautofw.
ipfwadm -F -f
ipfwadm -F -a m -S 192.168.2.0/24 -D 0.0.0.0/0
(also tried ipfwadm -F -m -a (a/m) -S ..., but no luck).
ipautofw -A -r 21 21 -h 192.168.2.2
See now that should forward it over to the other machine's port 21 right? I've searched the limited base of info related to ipautofw and this was how I was told to set it up, and it makes sense to me? But why the heck isn't it working? Help me soon please, I only have a few days of summer left before I have to go back to school and won't have any time to work on my baby!
