yes, there is a very simple way to.

1. compile your kernel with options for ip-masquerading and ip-firewall enabled
2. read the documentation in /usr/doc/packages/ipchains
3. set the MSQ_START=yes in rc.config
4. reboot and check your setup with 'ipchains -L -n'

Any questions?

kind regards, fred
