Thread: Install Linux as a Network Router

    Install Linux as a Network Router

    I am new to Linux and am interested in replacing our Windows router with a Linux router. I would like to eventually be able to capture network traffic between three segments using Ethereal but have a couple of questions.

    1. I currently have Red Hat Linux 9. Is this an OK version of Linux to use as a router or should I use something else?

    2. Should the machine be be setup as a server or workstation?

    3. Is there any documentation that exists for setting up Linux as a router for multiple segments?

    you can definitely do it

    bcos of the posix compliance in linux it works better and faster than windows

    you can configure your system as a router by doing the following things
    routing between lan& wan ___ i mean natting

    /etc/sysctl.conf
    change the following value to one
    net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0 <-> 1

    write a simple snat rule using tcp wrappers i.e your iptables

    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -i <interface_internal_network> -s <ur_network/CIDR.no>
    -j SNAT --to-source <ur_external_ipaddress>

    Thanks for the reply. Does it matter if Linux is setup as a server or workstation if I'm using as a router?

    Well installin it as a Server or a Work Station both are same it doesnt matter at all , installing it as a server installs other servers like http,ftp,.....

    I think There would be a difference between enterprise version and genreal open source version .
