Configured my ipchains input rule to accept connections only from

your help on the matter my problem was with my input chain. I had
transparent proxy complied in my kernel and I will have a look tproxy
later next week. For now I am going to let it run and see if any
problems arise. (So far none).
Other issues I encoutered in setting up dial up gateway which may be of
use to some people.
Had a lot of grief getting MLPPP working on dial up for ISDN. Changed my
Externel Modem/Router to DIVA/TA ISDN Modem and had no problem. This is
the best ISDN Modem/TA I have every used and it is made in Ireland.
Scratched my head trying to figure out why NT DHCP server would not
assign new leases after I brought the gateway on the network. I was
trying to get it to send DNS and ROUTER information to client machines.
Eventually read somewhere that after you change global settings you must
restart the service.
