Re: Hubless network?

Someone may have a better idea, but how about using ipchains to set up 
forwarding? Seems like you need your router box to forward stuff 
destined for eth1 from eth2 to eth1, and visa versa.

Don't take this as gospel . . . I'm fighting ipchains right now 
so, "when all you have is a hammer, all problems look like a nail."
