It's been a long time, but my notes from the first time I set up forwarding
with ipchains say that I added the following lines to
/etc/rc.d/init.d/ipcahins on the box that's connected to the outside world.
# for 'start'
echo "1" > $IPCHAINS_FORWARD
echo "1" > $IPCHAINS_DYNAMIC_IP
# for 'stop'
echo "0" > $IPCHAINS_FORWARD
echo "0" > $IPCHAINS_DYNAMIC_IP
These lines may be equivalent to clicking on "Network Packet Forwarding" in
the netcfg GUI's Routing tab. My notes are somewhat unclear on this point. :)
