IP Masq - remote server uses MAC filtering
I have a gateway connecting to a remote network (via wireless). The remote network uses MAC filtering and provides DNS servers and a VPN server.
The gateway is setup to do ip masquerading using the following commands:
#FWD: Allow all connections OUT and only existing and related ones IN $IPTABLES -A FORWARD -i ath0 -o eth0 -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT $IPTABLES -A FORWARD -i eth0 -o ath0 -j ACCEPT $IPTABLES -A FORWARD -j LOG #Enabling SNAT (MASQUERADE) functionality on EXT IF $IPTABLES -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ath0 -j MASQUERADE
When I do a name server lookup from a local computer (behind the gateway) this shows up in the gateway's logs:
kernel: IN=eth0 OUT=ath0 SRC=192.168.0.2 DST=184.108.40.206 LEN=59 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=63 ID=0 DF PROTO=UDP SPT=1674 DPT=53 LEN=39
As far as I can determine this should work, but the lookuip requests times out.
Can this be because my local computer's mac adress gets blocked by the remote network?
Is there anything else I missed? Why won't this work?
PS: I can ping all computers from each other - and I can browse the remote network from the gateway.
Thanks a lot...
