All of the IPTables manipulation specific to K12LTSP is setup as
services. There is nat (Network Address Translation), iptables-k12ltsp
(permit all traffic on eth0, where the terminals are), and
transparent-proxying (redirect web traffic to squid/squidGuard).

If you have the default setup (terminals on eth0, network/internet
access on eth1), you can just make sure that these services are enabled
and started. Such as:

        /sbin/chkconfig nat on
        /sbin/service nat restart

        /sbin/chkconfig iptables-k12ltsp on
        /sbin/service iptables-k12ltsp restart

        /sbin/chkconfig transparent-proxying on
        /sbin/service transparent-proxying restart

The simplest is to use the built-in tool:

        System -> Administration -> Security Level and Firewall

If you reload the firewall, be sure to restart nat, iptables-k12ltsp,
and/or transparent-proxying.
