I've come a long way with my Sheevaplug but I have one nagging problem which is setting up ip masquerading so I can share my 3G wireless connection to the rest of my network.

I am getting an error message along the lines of "IP Masquerading is not available in the Kernel" when the ipmasq script runs.  I have tried to compile everything into the kernel so I don't have any kernel modules.  Also, the ipmasq related files in /proc/net are not present either.

I use the following command to create the default config file:
Code:
make ARCH=arm kirkwood_defconfig

I have tried the Marvell kernel and the kernel from kernel.org, I am using version 2.6.30.1.  I set EVERY single option in the netfilter section to Y and I still get the message.   Can someone provide any help or even a config file for a kernel with working ip masquerading so I can compare mine?


I can post my config file if that would help...

I broke down and downloaded a kernel from http://sheeva.with-linux.com/sheeva/
 once I realized it had everything I needed built in.  This kernel works perfectly for my needs so far.  It even came with a .config file so I can look into what I was doing wrong when I get some time...
