Re: No ip-masquerade after upgrade 2.2.19 to 2.4.20
Please disregard my previous email. On my fifth kernel compile, I now
have ipmasquerading. I enabled and included everything under the sun
with regard to ppp, iptables, ipchains, and ipmasquerading. Undoubtedly,
I have a bloated kernel with features I don't need, but it works now.
I now need to educate myself on the differences between 2.4 and 2.2 with
respect to iptables/ipchains. Is there a concise synopsis anywhere in
the Linux Documentation Project that I can reference?
Thanks to all who have replied.
