I was wondering if redhat 9 doesnt use IPCHAINS and just uses iptables?

Cuz, i have been trying to get my windoze ME box to be able to access the internet thru my rh9 box, and I still cant get it to work...

I have no trouble getting on the internet thru my rh 9 box, but it just wonr share a connection..

I can ping the rh box and vice versa....The IP for my 2nd nic in my linux box is set at and the one for win me box is

I have them connected via Xover cable..

Is the problem my windoze box or rh box?

You could try installing such programs as Firestarter (firewall/router/sharing) on your linux box.

It is the easiest way to get your Internet Connection Sharing running with a secure firewall.


Red Hat 9 RPM:

Note: You will need GNOME or at least the GNOME libraries installed to get this working.

I currently run this on my Red Hat 7.2 box as it was the easiest and quickest way to get my connection up, so far after over 12 months I haven't really had a single problem.
