Are you using private address space or public space? if it is private then
you have to turn on masquerading for the internal network. However if your
network is using public ip addresses, then it is ok. However in both cases
you should turn on ip forwarding if the two networks are on different
interfaces on your machine. This can be done by editing /etc/rc.config and
setting ip_forward=yes or in the firewall preferably both. Or you can do
it manually whenever you need to with
echo 1> /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
and tunr it off with
echo 0> /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
