Hi all,

Ive set a box up with RULE  with the intention of using it as a firewall 
(shorewall using their two interface setup) and mailserver.  But before 
I get that far im having a bit of bother with setting up the two NIC's.  
This is perhaps not an appropriate query for this list but I am using a 
RULE install and a. am not sure if im missing anything of importance and 
b. got now where else to turn!!!!

Ive the two NIC's installed and have done a complete clean install of 
RULE (RH 9) Following the shorewall example  (note shorewall not yet 
installed) I set the gateway to s/net mask eth0 
is set to DHCP and it has picked up an ip so this must be identified 
configured and cabled up ok  eth1 is set to s/net mask  (Im using the 10.10.10.x ip range for the internal network 
following the shorewall schema not sure if even this is a bright thing 
to do) ifconfig shows this is up fine.

I can ping eth0 and eth1 but am not able to ping beyond on to the internet

Although as I said when installing I gave the gateway as 
ROUTE shows it as being on eth1 there is no corresponding 
gateway entry in ifconfig for eth0

Before I start chaging anything I was wondering iwhat I should do for 
the best?

By the way within the RULE install I included all the options bar the 
GUI's and office stuff

Best regards
