The default policy for the FORWARD chain is DROP.
Change the policy to ACCEPT with iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
I see that you use netfilter 0.1.x , you should consider switching to
0.90.x (right now the latest release is 0.90.4). This because ipnatctl has
been integrated into iptables. and this is the code that will be
integrated in the kernel before 2.4 is released.
Otherwise you will have to alter your scripts later when/if you upgrade to
a later 2.3 kernel. (or 2.4 when it's released)
You'll find the 0.90.x releases here:
