RE: Fedora Core 2 as internet gateway



Ok, well I am not exactly saure how to bridge network connections in FC2 but for starters here are some basics about networking and your situation:
 
1. The gateway IP for all the computer on the Network will be the IP of the Internet Gateway Linux Computer [192.168.1.1 for example]. This will be the linux computer's IP. That computer's gateway and other IP information will be configured on the dialup connection side which is different than 192.168.1.1 which is on the LAN side [the NIC].
2.  The 192.168.1.1 address should be used as the gateway address.
3.Not sure...
4.Once the gateway is configured, it will automatically tranfer requests through the dialup connection.
5. Should be automatic once the gateway is properly configured
6. Not sure...
7. Never experimented with it yet.

Subject: Fedora Core 2 as internet gateway



	Hello all,
	
	This is a kind of long post, but if you answer it, I
	believe it will help a lot of people.  If I end up
	getting it working, I am going to post the solution on
	my website for others.
	
	I would like to set up a dialup internet gateway where
	all the computers on my LAN would use a single
	computer's dialup connection to connect to the
	internet.
	
	I would like the gateway to be running Fedora Core 2.
	Could someone give me instructions on how to set this
	up?  I have googled for it, but most either point to
	older versions of RedHat or use a cable modem as their
	connection.  I need to share a dialup connection. 
	
	So to start this off, my first questions:
	1.) What IP do I need to give the gateway?  I assume
	one of the reserved ie. 192.168.1.1 or similar.
	2.) What do I put as the gateway IP when setting up
	the gateway computers lan connection?  Do I put its
	own?
	3.) How does one share the dialup connection? 
	4.) How does one set the gateway to connect to the
	internet when one of the computers on the lan requests
	it?
	5.) How does NAT/Masquerading get done in this
	situation?
	6.) What about a firewall using iptables?
	7.) How difficult is Squid to set up?  Obviously I
	will need a proxy because of the slow dialup
	connection speed.
