Re: fedora as a router

Hi Fedora Users,

I am trying to configure my Fedora system as a router but this is not working.

In my opinion, configuring Linux as a router is nothing more than

    "echo 1 >/proc/sys/net/ipv4.ip_forward".

This is my current situation.

Distro : Fedora FC3 ( last update today )

         machine A --> fedora router --> machine B.

machine A : 192.168.3.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
             defaultroute 192.168.3.2
Fedora router : eth1 192.168.3.2 netmask 255.255.255.0
                eth2 192.168.2.1 netmask 255.255.255.0

                echo 1 >/proc/sys/net/ipv4.ip_forward"
                iptables : no rules defined  ( everything ACCEPT )

machine B : 192.168.2.2 netmask 255.255.255.0

When I try to ping, from machine A 192.168.3.2 and 192.168.2.1, no problem but when I try to ping 192.168.2.2 or when I try connect on
the webserver running on 192.168.2.2, I don't get any answer.

I know this question is very stupid but it seems I miss something. So can somebody help me to solve this problem ???

Did you set 192.168.2.1 as the default gateway on 192.168.2.2?

Best regards,
Bernd.
