Having installed netfilter and configuring the firewall for
port forwarding and IP-Masquerade, I find that everything
works correctly except my Win95 clients do not seem to
be able to use DNS.

Linux box acts as a router with 2 NICS one connected to the
Inet and the other to the internal network as 192.168.0.1.
Both WIN95 and Linux clients are configured as 192.168.0.x
and Win95 has DNS set while Linux has resolv.conf set to
the ISP's nameserver's.

Linux boxes work just fine but Win95 boxes cannot use DNS
for some reason. I have had this working before but the ISP
has changed their internal setup to require use of DHCP rather
than a fixed IP. However, there is no problem using DHCP as
eth0 is configured properly on the Linux router box and a static
IP (192.168.0.1) is assigned to eth1.

Dynamic_addr is enabled in netfilter firewall script; all netfilter
components are compiled in the kernel - no modules.

Anyone have an idea why the Win95 boxes won't resolve
Inames?
