RE: routing question - please help

I had this problem .. I needed to add a couple of iptables lines as follows:

iptables -A FORWARD -i eth1 -s -d -j ACCEPT iptables -A FORWARD -i wlan0 -s -d -j ACCEPT

(where eth1 is over the network,

       wlan0 is over the network

Then it all suddenly started working.. A computer with address of 192.168.1.X can now ping/connect to a machine with ip addi 192.168.0.X and vice-versa.

Maybe it'll work for you too, or maybe not =)
