Description rfowler 2000-05-04 22:24:52 UTC
Using Linuxconf to setup IP forwarding has a bug, or it may be in the
startup scripts, if you do a # echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
the forwarding works .... if you reboot you loose the ip_forwarding.
it could be related to /etc/rc.d/init.d/network  ??

You can change the line in /etc/sysctl.conf to be 1 instead of 1.

Comment 2 Chris Traylor 2000-08-04 04:42:28 UTC
Sorry, I meant change it from 0 to 1(Duh). Anyway, this is really a duplicate of
Bug #10434.
