    Mandrake 10.0 network problem

    Hi, yes, I'm NewB to Linux, but not to cimputer. I'm trying to configure both network card, to share my internet connection. I can configure the NET card (the card used to go on internet) but, when I configure the other card (I'll call it LAN) I loose connection to Internet, but I STILL have my IP adress. I tried a few thing, but it never work, and sometime after setting the LAN card, the system decome extremly slow (It can take up to 5 minute to open a console) *PS: I'm on a P4 2.6Ghz* But it doesn't append everytime. I made a route -n BEFORE and AFTER setting the lan card, to see if there is any trouble, I'll past the result here

    I'd suggest instead of using pure iptables, you use a front end like FireStarter or Shorewall. If you use the internet sharing wizard in the MCC, then you'll be setup to use Shorewall with a transparent proxy through Squid. That can be a bit daunting to maintain or even understand and is definitely intended for use in a large environmet. Firestarter is nice for a small home network, and there are Mandrake RPM's available. Firewall is very easy to setup, configure, learn and maintain.

    Hope that helps!
