To any Smoothwall users
I have just set up smoothwall 0.9.8 in a dedicated box with 2 NICS - 1 with
an internal address and 1 with our external address - it correctly routes
packets out of our networks (and presumably is correctly routing the
responses back again) however - I have assigned a public IP address to a NIC
inside of the firewall (a mail server) but cannot ping this from a machine
outside our network. I can ping the external NIC in the firewall - so the
firewall is not routing external packets through. How do I change this
behaviour for selected ports - I have noticed the forwarding rules but these
only forward a specific port to a specific IP address - but we may have 2 or
3 different mailservers running on different machines so this is not really
Hope this is clear - I know shag all about firewalling I'm afraid.
