Thanks for everyone who responded to my original question. I am surprise and
amazed at the speed of the response. I have to explain that I am a new to
this OS, but have use pc's on M$ OS for a number of years.
Iam using Red Hat 6.2 on a cyrix machine with 2 nic and an external modem.
According to the article by Paul Ramsay, one nic, say Nic2, is to service
the internal network, the other nic, say Nic1, the external network. This
should provide me with a reasonable "medium-strength" firewall.
I guess since Nic1 services the external network and because I'm using
dialup, how do I tell the system to somehow have Nic1 communicate with the
external network through ppp0, my dialup interface.
I will checkout ppp, IP-Masqurade and ipchain - howto's as suggested, but
if anyone have a basic checklist I could follow I would be grateful if they
could pass it on.
