    Router for a lan with public ip addresses

    Hello All,
    I would like to setup a router for an experiment and the router just needs to route packets between two lans. I tried using NATting using private IP addresses, for both the LANs , but lots of packets are being dropped at the router. Hence I am trying to use public IPs (Assuming I do have some at my disposal). My setup is lan1 <---> (eth1) router (eth0) <---> lan2 , also I am using iptables for routing. I absolutely couldnt find any article which would explain me how to go about setting up as mentioned above. Also say, I am using the public IP addresses 130.138.6.xx for lan1 and eth1 (internal) is and eth0 (external) is configured to be I would like to know if this setup is possible in the first place? Any help in this direction would be of great help and thanks a zillion in advance to all.

    Try the Linux Firewalls Using iptables tutorial on peter's site. Helped the members of my staff greatly.

    Check out FreeSCO. You don't even need Linux to be pre-installed.

    Try Vyatta too. Has a command line that is just like a Juniper router. It should do NAT.
