Thanks for the reply. I am not currently at the mahcine, but I
can answer some of the questions you asked, and I will send the output of
the ifconfig and netstat outputs from home later.

thanks, muchly appreciated. Just for personal interest is your
xDSL line done over PPPoE ? There is much resentment towards Bell
for specifically targetting their ADSL service towards engineering and
Computer Science students in Waterloo without ever mentioning thatwe would
need to get the PPPoE thing sorted out to use our linux machines on it. (a
lot of us use linux at home as a replacement for going to he school'x

Yes, I can use lynx to surf the net from the 486. I can ssh back
to my machine from my school account by using the INet address of the ppp0

Yes, ppp0 is the default route on the 486.

Yep .. ssh'd home from school, then had that nasty OOPS business
with the ip_nat module ....

On the private machine the default route is to 192.168.1.1

Ok, well I am going to give it a shot again later. Hopefully I can
fiugre out why I cant insert the ip_nat module anymore without causing the

Will do, thanks a bunch.
