    you may want to ask this in a much bigger forum like or a forum specific to your distro. This forum is for using linux in the car.

      I assume the linux box is doing firewalling etc (it should be - it's a great line of defence until holes are plugged).

      Depending on where your problem lies, you should be able to "man ipforward" or "man ifconfig" in linux (if I remember my commands correctly).
      And I think even the windoze helps on networking are pretty good these days.

      Also try a google search. I was once regarded as a UNIX SysAdmin - I regarded it as a user of Google (honestly, between man & google, most was solvable!).
      I suspect windoze help only come via church on weekends.

      Not much help I know (tripzero's reply is right); but in case it leads to a faster solution.
      (Put it this way - you should not have to ask - that situation has arisen and been answered before. At least once.)
