Setting up IP Masquerade
With the World Wide Web now a mainstream phenomenon and computer prices dropping by the minute, there are more machines than ever connected to the Internet. All of this activity has created a bit of a real estate problem for the classic TCP/IPv4 addressing system and those of us who are beholden to it. Assigning a TCP/ IP address to each and every machine on your network today can be tricky -- either because of the cost, or because your network has simply run out of addresses. But don't despair, Linux IP Masquerade is ready and able to come to your rescue.
