Re: NAT problems

i'm working with debian since potato, i had a lots of firewalls but... now with lenny i execute my script and it didn't work well (or it didn't
work at all ough!)

what changed from kernel 2.6.18 / iptales 1.3.6 to kernel
2.6.22 /iptables 1.3.8 ????

A new NAT framework alternative (nf_nat) was introduced in kernel 2.6.20 in addition to the new IPv4+IPv6 conntrack framework alternative (nf_conntrack) that was introduced in kernel 2.6.15. The old IPv4-only conntrack+NAT framework (ip_conntrack+ip_nat) was removed from kernel 2.6.22. Many configuration options related to iptables, connection tracking and NAT changed location and name.

a simple syntax as # iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE
seems not to work well

Can you elaborate ?

if someone knows about important changes about etch/lenny i will
aprreciate links to documentation about them

Where does your kernel come from ? Is it a precompiled Debian package or did you build it from the source ? AFAIK, the latest kernel version in lenny is 2.6.21.
