routing question - please help

I have a question that is somewhat related to the purpose of this list and I hope someone can help me.

I am attempting to setup a STRIP network (which uses wireless Ricochet modems). The wireless network is set up on a server I have on my LAN. Here are the particulars:

Server: eth0, st0

I have ip_forward turned on. The problem is that packet from a computer on the wireless net (eg do not reach the LAN, and vice versa. I can see from tcpdump that packets will reach from the LAN, but they never get to their final destination.

Here is the output of route:

[root_at_scooter root]# route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface * U 0 0 0 eth0 * U 0 0 0 st0       *            U     0      0        0 lo
default         UG    0      0        0

Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

By the way, I do plan on putting a 802.11b wireless network off the same computer using hostap, and would like all 3 nets to be reachable by each other, so this problem is somewhat relevant to the list topic.

Thanks for your help,
