ipmasq doesn't see nics correctly
Been having a problem setting up ipmasq with a 2.4.19 kernel. I have solved
the problem with a hack in the ipmasq rulesets. I would like to figure out
a cleaner way to solve this problem. I think your firewall is the last
place you want a hack!
ipmasq -V >> 3.5.11
iptables -V >> iptables v1.2.7a
uname -a >> Linux ssp2 2.4.19 #4 SMP Mon Feb 24 01:04:18 EST 2003 i686
Pentium III (Katmai) GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
I found that in ruleset /etc/ipmasq/rules/M70masq.def ipmasq didn't know
which were internal and which were external interfaces: It showed INTERNAL
as an empty string and EXTERNAL_OUT as 'eth0 eth1'. I have my system
accessing dsl on eth0 (external) and our internal network on eth1
I modified the rule script and substituted my own M70masq.rul (as
recommended) and straightened things out in this script to get masquerading
and forwarding set up correctly. All I did was temporarily substitute etho
for EXTERNAL_OUT and eth1 for INTERNAL.
Has anyone come accross this problem? Is it a problem in the script or in
Thanks for any help,
