I've been messing with _ipfwadm_ rules here at home on my Linux
network for about 2 weeks (seems like two years) and finally got one
of my machines to go straight through my masq box to the
_hills.ccsf.cc.ca.us_ site (where my night courses are at) via telnet.
That was a one time only success, can't get it to work again but
that's another assignment.
My question now is, after having done that I cannot get a standard
ping exercise to work again? I have the results of a simple four count
ping on my local lan spew out close to 200 attempts with all but the 4
showing (DUP!) at the end.
Ping seemed like such a "nothing to know" command but obviously there
is alot I don't know about it. Below is the truncated results saved to
Any "ping in a nutshell" comments would help.
