Need Redhat 5.2 IP Masquerade Help

I am trying to setup Ip Masquerading, I have followed the instructions in several how too's. My server is connected via a dial up. I have a static ip address and a domain name for this. I have been sucessful in setting up email on the work stations they can send an receive mail fine. I can telnet from a workstation to the server ok, from there I can telnet to the outside world. I just can not get the browers to see anything from the workstations.

What are your masquerading rules? Did you add any? Telnetting to your server doesn't involve masquerading.

type these lines in from console or to have it done for you when you boot put these lines in a startup script

ipfwadm -F -p deny
ipfwadm -F -a m -P TCP -S192.168.1.0/24 -D0.0.0.0/0
ipfwadm -F -a m -P UDP -S192.168.1.0/24 -D0.0.0.0/0

192.168.1.0 is your network address. What I have here will masq to all machines that have ip's of 192.168.1.* as their ip address. Make each client machine's ip something like
192.168.1.2 etc

Thanks for the reply, Here's what I got so far, I was using 10.0.0.1 as my local ip address, I changed my eth0 address to 192.168.0.1

Now I tried your suggestion
ipfwadm -F -p deny Works, I get no errors

When I type ipfwadm -F -a m -P TCP -S192.168.1.0/24 -D0.0.0.0/0
I get the following error:  invalid protocol 'TCP' specified.

any suggestions ?

gblue you have to set your linux machine to 192.168.1.*  the star
can be any number. You say that you have setup with 192.168.0.1 this will put the machine onto a different network address from the machines so make that change of course you dont have to if you keep all machines on the same network :). The next thing to do is to make the TCP and UDP tcp and udp. Put the info i gave you into
/etc/rc.d/rc.local  and make sure ipv4 is running also. Your client machines should use the linux server ip as their gateway and their ip address should be 192.168.1.*
