Shorewall version 1.4.7
RH9 + Kernel 2.4.23
Problem Statement :
Using adsl-start to commit connection to I-net.
ppp0<->eth0 (labeled as dsl)
NAT works fine and great when all is well.. Occasionally, shorewall(?) will
stop routing the nat connections.. I'm not sure why, but it will come up
again when I do a -> sudo shorewall restart.
Can I buy a clue here???
BTW, the adsl line's not too great, gets dropped quite often. But, when it's
dropped, it will re-connect and the fw+nat (my laptop) can connect with no
problems, the pcs on nat will have occasional hiccups until I restart
ip is dynamic. Does it matter?
