No, it's just the _variable_ name.

Well this could be simpler:
--- /etc/sysconfig/iptables ---
-A INPUT -j tcprules
-A FORWARD -j tcprules
-A tcprules -i ppp0 -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
-A tcprules -i ! ppp0 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT
-A tcprules -i ppp0 -m state --state INVALID,NEW -j DROP
-A tcprules -i ppp0 -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-unreachable
-A POSTROUTING -s 192.168.0.0/24 -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE
--- end of /etc/sysconfig/iptables ---
(btw, 192.168.0.0/24 and 192.168.0.1/24 are just the same as the
last byte would be outside the _network_ address being the _host_
Then make sure /etc/sysctl.conf has the line as here:
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
(my favorite oops-forgot-it is not to enable forwarding %)
To enable it all now, do
echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
service iptables restart
which will result in stateful firewall with NAT up and running.
Well, hopefully -- I didn't actually test this :-)
PS: if the internet interface is not ppp0 and say eth1 -- make
PPS: 2ALT: hey if we've broken drakgw we'd really better
introduce something yet better ;-)
