RE: Debian equivalent of rc.firewall??

You can try to insert it in rc.boot/local.

I would reccommend to use the ipmasq package, however.  It was
developed for Debian and works quite reasonably well.

Subject: Debian equivalent of rc.firewall??

I've just recently switched distros from Mandrake to Debain, I started
out with Mandrake because I wanted to learn some fundementals before
expanding to a "true" Linux distribution.

I'm having troubles setting up IP Masquerading. When I used in Mandrake
(Red Hat based) I wrote a script (rc.masq) and executed it a boot-time
through the rc.local configuration script.

Now, in Debain, I'm having trouble in finding out which rc*.d directory
I should insert my script and what to name it. I read through the IP
Masq HOW-TO but it seems to be RedHat biased.

Where would I insert my Masq/Firewall scripts and how would I get them
to be read at boot-time?
