you are missing the IP NAT command, which could be like this:

ip nat inside source list 1 interface e0 overload

The command can be varied depend on your preference.

your answer worked, thanks alot....can you explain these commands? how does the source list reference the different interfaces? ( source list 2 = e0 ??)

I'll try to explain it simple;

You have 'ip nat inside' on the e1 interface and 'ip nat outside' on the e0 interface which tells the traffic coming from e1 and going out through e0 should be natted.


ip nat inside source list 2 int e0 overload

What this tells the router is that, any traffic that matches the access-list 2 should be patted using inteface e0's ip address.

The access-list 2 makes sure that all the hosts inside your network or in other words, all machines in 10.10.10.x network will match it.

Hope that is clear enough.
