I've masqueraded 20 something Macs using MacTCP (yeah Macs suck but
the networking is kinda easy) through a linux machine I set up at
school that uses a 28.8 PPP connection... and everything works
fine! (Netscape, telnet, irc, & Netscape ftp) I masquerade all the IPs
with the command
ipfwadm -F -a masq -P all -S -D
(I think, maybe the syntax is a little off, Im writing from memory)
I use kernel 1.3.95 tho, and am hesitant to upgrade to more recent
versions considering all the scary stories from this mailing list,
especially the one about masquerading being broken!
Masquerading is a wonderful thing, a natural by-product of a cool
operating system like linux (its a wonder not all power mongers
dont wipe dos off and install linux, I guess because linux doesnt
get as much $$$ as microsoft and therfore can't put advertisements
on TV and magazines)
