I have 3 machines, call them A, B and C.
A is connected to the internet through an ADSL modem.
B is connected to A through ethernet.
C connects to B through a PCI WiFi device on B.
B can connect to the internet through A.
C can connect to A through B,
but cannot connect to the internet through A.
Is this possible?
All machines are running Fedora-8.
There is a dhcpd server running on A,
serving the ethernet LAN (192.168.2.0).
There is also a firewall (shorewall) running on A,
allowing packets on the ethernet LAN through to the internet.
There is also a dhcpd server running on B,
serving the WiFi LAN (192.168.3.0).
But the packets on this second LAN cannot get through A to the internet,
not surprisingly, probably, as there is no mention of this LAN
on the firewall.
The usual prize for the first solution that works ...
