I have a 3 machine network... two Windows clients and an RH Linux 7.1 server/router.
ipchains does the routing, and the "firewall" can be disabled for the purpose of this
problem (I will be happy to work on that issue at a later date.)
[/root]# ipchains -L
Chain input (policy ACCEPT)
Chain forward (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination ports
MASQ all ------ 192.168.1.0/24 anywhere n/a
Chain output (policy ACCEPT)
the Windows clients are 192.168.1.51 and ...52, the server is ...50
I am able to access the internet through this config.. except that one or two sites fail if I go directly.. a problem which has been circumvented by using a proxy server provided by my ISP (outside my local network.)
But the problem is.. I cannot make any ftp session or telnet session to the server.. even from the console!
Any help is appreciated.
