I am windows guru who is slowly converting to Linux. One of my projects is to set up a really simple linux router in bash. So far I have installed linux with kernel 2.4 and at the bash prompt have setup both of my ehternet cards using ifconfig. I have also set up the default gateway with the route command. Here is the set up
Eth0 DHCP 10.80.10.67 (to my isp)
ETH1 Static 192.168.10.1 (to my local network)
default gw 10.80.10.1
From my local machine I can connect to the web and ping without any problems. When I use a machine connected to my internal network I can ping 10.80.10.67 and all the 192.168 adresses but can't go any further. I need to know how to set up the linux route so it will forward my local traffic onto the web?
I would really apreicate some examples I am very new to bash am having problems getting used to a prompt again.
