 Internet Sharing using a linux box

"One simple way of sharing the internet connection using linux is using the IP forwarding feature of the kernel and network address translation (NAT). For NATing one can use either ipchains or iptables.  It is assumed that the private network is in the 192.168.1.0-255 range. Let us take the example of a simple network.  The server is used to connect to the internet. It's IP address is 192.168.1.1. There are 4 workstations 192.168.1.2-5. They are connected to the server via the switch. All the workstations share the internet through 192.168.1.1."
