I configure DSL with 2 Ethernet Interfaces and need to route, to do that so the following is tested and working:

net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1

sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.conf

Now DSL is routing my traffic.
The bad thing is, it doesn't stand after a reboot. Need to do again 'sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.conf' manually...

Well, just did the following and works:

Added the following line at the end of file:


sudo sh -c "echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward"

My previous example is no more needed with this new step.
