So now br0 is your interface that will talk to your LAN pcs. Are br0 and
your LAN pcs on the same subnet?
Are you referring to the host OS?
Host OS is sabayon and guest OS is Arch, running within VirtualBox on
BTW, how did you link eth1 for Internet
Connection Sharing? I have
always wondered how ICS is done in GNU/Linux.
1) Set up my static IP on eth1
2) Gave an IP of 192.168.0.1 to eth0 and 192.168.0.2 to the PC on the LAN.
3) Made sure that the PC's on the LAN ping each other.
4) Set up Masqueading with IP Tables
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 192.168.0.0/24 -j MASQUERADE
I believe this can be done by GUI tools too but never looked into them.
Wow I didn't know it was that simple, only one line. Since the internet
device and the LAN device is not mentioned in your command line, does
the system assume internet device as the one which has default route and
the LAN is the one that matches subnet?
5) Enable ip forwarding
echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
This will allow packets to pass b/w interfaces.
Just curious to know, after IP forwarding eth1 (internet) does your host
OS have access to the net?
