Description Oliver Jones 2005-06-22 15:11:48 UTC
Description of problem:
Many SOHO users enjoy the benefits of Microsofts Internet Connection sharing
feature.  Linux has had NAT and IP Masqurading for a long time.  However it has
long been hidden in the bowels of sysctl and iptables/ipchains.  There exists no
easy, out-of-the-box way for a RedHat/Fedora newbie to easily (and securely)
share their computers Internet connection with others on the same network.  

I submit that work needs to be done in this area of the the network
configuration tools for RedHat/Fedora Linux.
