I have installed Mandracke 6.5 as a server/router for a small home network.
It is a dual-homed with one nic connected to the cable modem and the other to the hub. I am using class C private ips for the machines on my local network and I have assigned the static ip given to me when I had first installed the cable service.
The server works well and I have used ipchains to get the internal machines to talk to the internet. So far, nothing fancy.
Here is my problem: the original machine that was connected to the internet before I setup the server has RaptorMobile on it. I use RaptorMobile to tunnel through the corporate firewall. This machine has not yet joined my home network. I need to know how to configure it so that the RaptorMobile could still tunnel through.
Is this possible if I assign a private IP to the machine or will the tunneling fail?
If not, do I have to get an IP address to ALL the machines on the internal network or only for the server and the machine with RaptorMobile on it?
Also, in case I get an ip address for the server and for the machine with RaptorMobile installed, do I have to assign a valid IP to the nic on the server connecting the server to the internal network so that the path from the machine with RaptorMobile to the internet has only valid IPs?
As you can see, I am groping in the dark and any help and/or pointers is greatly appreciated.
