    Question Linux Routing


    Hi friends,
    I need to setup a linux router. The computer that is to be the router has 2 ethernet cards with ips 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.1.1.

    Its like this:
    COMP1: 192.168.0.2

    COMP2: (ROUTER) :2 cards
    card1: 192.168.0.1
    card2: 192.168.1.1

    COMP3: 192.168.1.2

    Now whenever I send a packet from COMP1 to COMP3, it comes to COMP2 card1 but does not go to COMP3 nor card2 of COMP2.

    What is the porblem???
    Please give me a sample configuration if possible...
    Thanx in advance...
