This iptables string works fine for me     " iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING 
-o ippp0 -j MASQUERADE". I'm looking at IE on one of my gatewayed machines 
right now. I do have a question for the writer though -  are you using an 
init script (e.g., one that sources "/etc/init.d/functions"), or entering 
this manually at a term? In other words, how do you know its working?
