Er, no thanks. I am not doing a masqerade + firewall. I am doing a dial-in
server - need to control a box that's not on the net. All the manuals/howtos
are quite old (found a 2003 article that still refer to old ppp, modem,
dialin howtos. They refer to configuring the kernel for ip forwarding. This
has changed and I was wondering about the why and how at the kernel level. I
don't really need port forwarding turned on - I will be talking to the server
- no tthrough the server. I just found the difference at the kernel level
and am chasing down the reasons out of curiosity.
Make clockwise circles with your right foot.
Now use your right hand to draw the number "6" in the air.
