Re: ping: sendto: Operation not permitted
For the record, removing the debian 'ipmasq' package - which had an empty
configuration and therefore was defaulting everything to deny - solved the
ping and dns problems, solved everything in fact except how to get ipmasqing
working in 2.0.34.
I'm suspicious of that 'IPAUTOFW' option. Does anybody have a kernel config
for 2.0.34 that produces a working ip masq?
