A Simple Question on iptables (Forward issue)

Hi Daryl,

I just read your post about NAT (OP from FW). For a while I was thinking how I could forward some ports. I think you gave the answer.
My procedure :
set FW_ROUTE to "yes"
set FW_FORWARD : ",<my_server_ip>,tcp,<smb_ports>"

If I do this I think I would be able to access a samba-server from the outside.
Before you say "don't do this, security" I will add that between the Suse-machine and the 'net I have a VPN router/firewall. The other side of the VPN tunnel will have net-address 192.168.10.x.
I think this is a secure setup. I hope you can confirm this.
If anyone has other ideas, I would be glad to hear them.
Koenraad Lelong.
