Mike, I believe you're the one in charge of the wb docs,.. 

should be 
   echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

Comment 2 Johnray Fuller 2002-05-09 17:33:21 EDT
Well, this just proves that no matter how many times you look at something,
something can slip by.

The command is correct, but the sentence leading up to it is not. Here is the
corrected text, which is, infortunately, *not* in the printed document:

"To check the status of IP forwarding at any time, issue the following command:

cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

If the above command returns a 1, IP forwarding is enabled. If it returns a 0,
then you must issue the echo command listed above."

I am in the process of checking into whether I can issue an errata on the Web
site and whether or not it is that way on the Docs CD for the Advanced Server

Thanks for your help!

I have issued a Web site errata on this and updated the source.

Thanks again for the help.
