Got a new server with two NIC's.
One is concected to the internet
the others is for the local lan
How can I enable ip forwarding so the server routes tcp packetts from the LAN to the internet?

Well, you should run the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard (CEICW) which is part of the To-Do list (linked as 'connect to the internet').

Well, actually you only need to connect the internal NIC to a switch or something that makes it think it's connected to the network.

Glad you got it figured out though.

Had it conncected to a hub on the internal network and the client to the same hub on the internal network.
the ohther nic to external network.

Couldn't reach the internet until I signed the workstation in the domain of the SBS server.
Or is not necesarry to be in the domain?

Yes it's necessary to be in the domain if you want centralized management of your network!  You must add the computer using the add-computer wizard on your server, and then only connect with the http://<servername>/connectcomputer method.  If you've connected a computer through any other method then you need to correct it with these steps:

The following needs to be done with the client machine:
1.  Log in with THAT machine's LOCAL administrator account.
2.  Unjoin the domain into a WORKGROUP
3.  Change the name of the computer
4.  Delete or rename the following directory C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Clients
5.  Ensure that the network adapter is configured to get an IP address automatically (DHCP enabled)
6  Reboot

Then on the server, from the Server Management Console:
1.  Remove the client computers if it still shows in the Client Computer screen on the Server Management Console
2.  Add the client with it's NEW name using the Add Computer wizard

Then, go back to the client machine and join the domain by opening Internet Explorer and navigating to http://servername/connectcomputer
