Re: No ip-masquerade after upgrade 2.2.19 to 2.4.20

I recently took the plunge and upgraded the kernel on that machine
from 2.2.19 to 2.4.20.  Now, it no longer provides internet access
for the lan.  From the gateway's console, I can access the internet,
so ppp is working.  The machine is accessible from the other
computers, so the eth0 funtions are working.  Can anyone help me
troubleshoot this problem?

In a rare moment of foresight, I kept the previous kernel and labeled
it 'safe' in lilo.conf, so I can still use that kernel, and currently
am.

Thanks much,

One of the things that changed between 2.2 and 2.4 kernels was IP chains transmogrified into IPtables. Perhaps your natting scripts no longer work with the 2.4 kernel?

You might need to go to the netfilter site (http://www.iptables.org/) to get the latest version of IPtables.
