OK, thanks for the help, but that would work for the CAT5 connected systems
not for the wireless systems. To do that I would have to buy a new Access
Point as that is already included in my router. I had this setup before I
went wireless but was using smoothwall. I don't want to buy anymore
equipment, I just would like to possibly create(I know this is probably not
correct) a loop where all incoming traffic is sent to the SuSE box and then
from their NATed to where it needs to go or dropped by the firewall. Same
goes for outgoing traffic and the proxy. Hope that clarifies what I was
thinking. Thanks again!
