    Unhappy linux as router with shorewall routing problem


    I have setup ubuntu as a router now, with shorewall and bind9 works like a charm. Except one little thing.. I cant seem to go to access my outside ip from the local network. In my case I cant access http://145.99.157.xx but I can access the local ip (http://192.168.1.xx). Is there anyone that knows how to setup shorewall in a way I can access the outside ip?

    I found a tutorial on shorewall.net that didnt work ( http://www.shorewall.net/FAQ.htm#faq2 ). But I tried (except for the bind9 solution because I do not really understand what they are doing there) but i think there must be an easier solution. I had freesco as a router first and that one worked out of the box with accessing the outside ip.

    If anyone could help out, i'd really appreciate it.

    You got it running at least, i'll be doing it again and see if i get it done so i can help you find the answer to this. And you're right, the shorewall.net tutorials just put everything so easy but nothing's that easy.

    Good luck guys.
