[lug] One last question (routing and MASQ)

let me get this straight:  Your linux box has two ethernet cards.  One
(eth0) goes to the cable modem (or whatever it is) and the other
(eth1) goes to your internal network.  You have a Solaris box, an
iMac, and a Windows box on your internal network.

              | Linux |
        |         |          |
   +---------+ +------+ +---------+
   | Solaris | | iMac | | Windows |
   +---------+ +------+ +---------+

If this is not a correct representation of your network, then please
draw it out for me.

Also, please send the results of the following programs on the
following boxes.

Linux box:
netstat -rn
ifconfig -a

Solaris box:
netstat -rn
ifconfig -a

Windows box:
route print

Hopefully I can help!
