Routing, maybe NAT...
I am new to Debian and just got down setting up a server to run tunnelv. I
am curious as to how I go about doing something. Before I start, here is
what my home network looks like:
INTERNET <-> Cable Modem <-> LinkSys Cable/DSL Router <-> 8-port
Switch <-> 3 Computers.
The 3 computers are configured with IP's 192.168.1.100-102. They have 192.
168.1.1 as the default router address. The *.101 and *.102 machines are
end user, Mac and Win98. The *.100 is running Debian Linux with tunnelv.
The machine has 192.168.1.100 as IP, 192.168.1.1 as default router. When I
startup tunnelv, it adds some stuff to routing tables, and obviously
allows me to access my work's private network (which is a 192.168.42.*).
Everything works fine and the Debian box can access the private network.
But... I now want to provide this same VPN access over to my other
machines, the Mac and the Win98 box.
So I thought that I could setup the Debian box as a gateway. This is what
Set default router address on Mac and Win98 to the Debian box's IP,
192.168.1.100. Started up /usr/sbin/routed
With just that done, it didn't work, Mac couldn't access work's private
network. I really don't have any experience with setup of a gateway box,
so don't know how to go about this. Do I need to setup routes? Maybe setup
a NATing router so packets from private network can find their way to the
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
