I have gotten Gibraltar Firewall on a live CD.
Gibraltar version 1.2.
I am trying to set it up as a gateway using a modem.
I have Gibraltar booting and running from the CD.
I have it configured, I can start PPPd and then
I can ping out, so that works.
Pon and poff ISPname dials in and shuts down
Hostname returns Gibraltar, and in networking
I see eth0 is set to 10.0.0.1.
So far so good
I can start another machine using Mandrake 9.0
and can ping 10.0.0.1.
But I cannot get anything else to work so far.
KNode for example cannot contact the ISP
to download a list of newsgroups, it returns a
cannot access server error message.
I have editted the Gibraltar host.allow file
10.0.0.20 being my Mandrake machine's IP address
The gateway is set to 10.0.01, same as Gibraltars eth0
but still no joy.
DNS is set to the same number I use
to contact the net through my ISP.
I have checked networking and both systems are running
and connected properly to a Netgear switch.
I can ping 10.0.0.1 from the Mandrake machine at 10.0.0.20.
What could I be missing or over looking?
I have two machines I want to get connected
to the net via this gateway.
Then I will try NAT masquerading.
But I want to get this working first.
