I'm trying to set up IP Masquerading to serve the rest of my network with internet accesibility. My computer is the host, running Redhat 7.3. I set up DHCP and IP Masqing according to the Howto, and yet, well, it doesn't work. My test box, running Win98, can get an IP from the DHCP server, but no internet. It can't ping 192.168.0.1 (returns a "host unreachable" error). I can renew and release the lease on the IP address, and I've tried about every single option in the network settings on the win98 box. Leads me to believe its me... though I followed the Howto step-by-step, changing certain settings as needed, and it loads correctly during boot, but still no go. I can't find any errors in the dmesg or anything... and lsmod reports all the ipmasq stuff as running, so I'm stumped. What am I missing here? It's prolly pretty obvious, knowing me. heh. Thanks.
PS -- sorry about my 18,000,000 posts to this community with relatively dumb questions, but what can I say, I'm a newbie and sometimes all the docs in the world won't help my dense ass. Thanks for all the help so far... made my life a LOT less frustrating :)
