Linux is certainly capable of performing as a router but your posting suggests you have one.

To be a router the linux box needs two or more interfaces, a properly configured routing table (the 'ip' command) and optionally some firewall rules (the 'iptables' command).

There are HOWTOs on these subjects at www.tdlp.org

I'm not sure if ipchains and iptable will be enough to set up a router.. with those apps you can have the filters to setup the firewall...  You will also need some router daemon like routed or gated.

  Once I setted up a router with gated in less than 30 minutes, by reading the docs that came with the tgz file.


  that's true that you need at least two interfaces... or one, with two IP addresses, one for each network you want to get together...  if this is your case, take a look about IP aliasing.
