There are two ways to do this:
a) The bridge: You add both eth0 and eth1 to a bridge, which then
gets an IP address from the DHCP server and forwards everything on
the ethernet level.
b) The router: For this to work, you need to divide your subnet into
further subnets (or only use specific IPs behind the gateway) in
- set up your external DHCP server/router to tell it that it can
find those IPs behind the gateway.
- set up your gateway to tell it to forward stuff to those computers
If this is done, you need to enable IP forwarding via a sysctl call
on the gateway. Here, the forwarding takes place on the IPv4/6 level.
I would suggest to go by a), which is much simpler. If you need more
help with either of them, please feel free to ask.
A board is the planck unit of boredom.
