Networking behind a router. (Novice)


I've got an ADSL connection to my 4-port router and have one static IP.  I'm currently using the routers' DHCP & NAT to connect 2 9x machines and one on linux.

I'd like to use the linux box as a server for quake3 (q3ut2), and later maybe webhost.  As my internal IP's are "hidden" by the router, is there a way that I can configure the router so that my server can be seen?

I'd like to be able to use quake on the other machines on the LAN as well.

The router can port forward.

You want to forward port 27960 UDP packets to the host that is running the quake III server.

Do you have iptables running? If so, make sure it's not dropping port 27960:

iptables -A INPUT -t filter -p udp --dport 27960  -j ACCEPT
