This is a bit late, considering the deadline of today, but...
To get very basic masquerading working, you basically need the following
ipchains -A forward -j MASQ
echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
Note that this provides absolutely *no* security whatsoever - that'll have to
be set up more carefully. The IPCHAINS-HOWTO should provide the necessary info
for firewalling, while the IP-Masquerade HOWTO will give you a hand with masq.
I'm afraid I can't help you with gfcc as I've never used it myself.
I suppose that since you've passed your deadline, I should ask how it went -
did you succeed? Well?
Sorry everybody - all the servers at the ISP I use for email have been down
for the past four days. They've come back up again, so now I have to catch
up on all that mail...
