NAT and PPPoE

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

I encounter problems with the NAT and PPPoE, some request responses never finished or loaded endless.

My solution was to fix the MTU with following rule:

root # iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp --tcp-flags SYN,RST SYN -j TCPMSS --clamp-mss-to-pmtu

just before:

root # iptables -I FORWARD -i ${LAN} -d 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0 -j DROP

root # iptables -A FORWARD -i ${LAN} -s 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0 -j ACCEPT

root # iptables -A FORWARD -i ${WAN} -d 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0 -j ACCEPT

root # iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ${WAN} -j MASQUERADE

Update supported kernels

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

This guide only supports ancient Linux kernels (2.4/2.6): "Router is running Linux 2.4 or 2.6; other versions of the kernel are not supported by this guide"

Someone with appropriate knowledge (not me, unfortunately...) should update the guide and use the latest kernels available.

I will work on updating it. Should not be too bad, there are not very many options in this article. --Maffblaster (talk) 00:30, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
