Next step: Make sure IP forwarding is enabled. The file
/proc/sys/net/ip_forward should contain a 1...if it does not, add the line
'echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ip_forward' to your startup scripts.
Step after that, read the iptables HOWTO at
It will give you a pretty good idea of where to start with your iptables
configuration, as well as a brief explanation of how it works.
