How to connect a Linux web/mail server with win98 as gateway

Hi
I have a win98 pc connected to my ISP via ADSL. I need to connect a cobalt cube web/mail server to this win98pc.

How do I setup this win98 pc such that all web request from the internet are routed to the cobalt cube? Mail traffic have to pass through this win98 pc too. Any special IP software that can do this

Windows 98 can't do this out of the box. You'll need some 3rd party software such as wingate, which will let you forward certain ports to the cobalt box for instance. (e.g. web, mail etc)

The answer to your question is Winroute. It has DHCP, mail, DNS, packet filtering, NAT and other useful features.

Hi,

Perhaps you have another solution.
Why not connect the ADSL router to the linux box?

The linux box can be configured like a gateway, so all request can pass through the linux box to win98 without any changes except those you need to pass to the web/mail server.

Frank.
Linux?. Yes, of course.
