My guess is that the rules on the firewall are
not complete yet. You have to allow access from
the lan network to the internet and the
NAT-network. If i'm correct, you can check if the
packages are dropped/denied by the firewall in
the firewall logfile (/var/log/ ).

Mazzel, Marcel

ok, now this problem is solved, for I can ping
the outside world from my box.... still I have
another problem ,that I intentionnaly keep vague,
for I want to verify thinks by myself before
being precise.... and therefor guided by the hand

Suse 7.0 box is
Another1 box is
Another2 box is

the Suse box has 2 nics, the eth0 is external and
is connected to a router directly to the net, the
tr0 is internal and links to the nat'ed lan.

>From the box : I ping eth0, tr0, another1 and
another2 as well as the outside world, and the
computer on the nat'ed lan (192.168.0.x). This is
From the outside world : I see Suse 7.0, another1
and another2 which is fine...
From the inside (lan), I can ping the SuSE box,
but NOT another1 and another2.... and not the
outside world...

I have modified my etc/route.conf, I run a script
that run rules for ipchains....

The point is : I want to know what files to check
to see what is wrong .... The SuSE box replaces a
"RH6.0 another0" box (this box runs fine when
connected) that should be no longer connected....
what files must I check in order to solve the
problem (any
files related to the problem....). I certainly
have missed something, but what and where I don't
know... i've checked and checked, but maybe i
overlooked and didn't see the evidence.... and
missed the one file that could be helpfull
