There is detailed howto here "http://www.muine.org/~hoang/netnat.html"
on the net. Also IP filter has very detailed documentation.
I used to do this with my qube but found that at the end it is not worth
the trouble, IMHO. You have to actively maintain it, upgrade OS, edit
rules and such. Takes too much time.
If this is for your home you may be better off with some simple
firewall/router that you can buy for $30 or so.
