So, what do you know about linux, ipfw, IP masquerade, and routing?
I have the linux machine here, outsidehost.my.domain.com on
XXX.XXX.XXX.XX ppp0, with a 3com 509b card <called
insidehost.my.domain.com 192.168.80.1 eth0. The inside net has win 3.11
and win95 machines, 192.168.80.XX, they are set with 192.168.80.1
<insidehost> as their gateway. I can watch all the packets on
192.168.80.0/255 with various net tools, inculding tcpdump. the win
machines can play together fine in both tcp/ip and netbio. But,
insidehost will not recognize their packets and forward them on via
outsidehost, and they seem to not see those of insidehost <e.g. arp
replies> So, they're at this point is nothing getting masqueraded out.
All policies for ipfw are accept, to make it as open as possible now.
Here's the route table on blackhole, have tried others:
Kernel routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window Use
gw.outside.net * 255.255.255.255 UH 1500 0 3
mydomain.com * 255.255.255.0 U 1500 0 70
loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 3584 0 95 lo
default gw.outside.net * UG 1500 0 604
Linux outsidehost 2.0.23 #3 Fri Jun 6 20:52:07 CDT 1997 i586

OK, so you're a Ph.D. Just don't touch anything.
