Thanx for the info mahesh,
well i have coupla things more to clear up,
 do i have to enable ip_forwaring in /proc
 what should be in the dns of the win98 client.
thanx in advance
The iptables rule for transparent proxy is
#/sbin/iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 -o eth1 -j
in the above rule 192.168.0.0 is the local network and
255.255.255.0 is subnet.
-o eth1 option specifies the external interface which connects your proxy
server/gateway to the internet.for me it is eth1.for you it might be ppp0 if
you are using dialup.
Enable routing on the Server.
Add the IP of your proxy server as gateway in the network properties of the
Windows machine.That's it.
reply back if have any relative problem.
