IP Masquerading on Linux

Brian Vargyas, XNet

Tuesday, June 23, 7:00-9:00 pm
College of DuPage Room SRC-1024


The details on how to configure IP Network Address Translation under Redhat Linux will be presented.

As the trend to migrate internal networks to the Internet continues, IP address space gets harder to obtain. We must look at ways to save IP address space and still get the needed Internet functionality of every node on our network in a secure fashion. Corporations don't want to re-address machines on their network just to access the Internet.

Several cases will be presented. Business to business solutions as well as high speed cable modem and ADSL home Internet solutions.
