    Try this link which shows how to convert a Linux box into a simple router. Use this to set up your Samba box.

    Your firewall also needs some configuration. You'll will have to:

    1. Have a route statement to the network via the samba box's 200.1.1x IP address

    2. (If the firewall is using NAT to get to the Internet) Make sure the firewall is configured to NAT the traffic it recieves from the and networks to whatever your firewall's NAT IP address is.

    To set up SAMBA shares check this link:
