question about startup and firestarter

hello there,

i have arch running as my work computer and our internet router.
i have another computer running ubuntu that gets the internet from this one.
but heres the deal, i have firestarter installed, but if i reboot the arch computer, it does not allow internet connection sharing or even the connection until i manually start up firestarter.

do i have it out of order in my rc conf? here is what it looks like.

DAEMONS=(syslog-ng hotplug adsl hal network portmap mountd nfslock nfsd iptables crond alsa firestarter httpd mysqld sshd)

i am desiring to have it mount a shared on startup, but of course it cannot mount it without allowing it to connect .

i have a shared folder on this computer that i back up my family computer /home/fam directory to. and i  want to have a share on that one that i can back up my home folder and website on this one to.  Or is there a better way to do this ?

thanks much

Re: question about startup and firestarter

firestarter takes care of starting iptables, so you don't need to have both in there.

also firestarter needs to be listed BEFORE network.

here's my daemons line :

DAEMONS=(syslog-ng firestarter network netfs dbus crond hal alsa cups vmware)

Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: question about startup and firestarter

ok, well i moved firestarter to right in front of network, and removed ip tables from the rc.conf DAEMONS array. Reboot and its still the same way.  Can you think of something else i am missing ?
thanks for the tip btw. i like having one less item in the list.

Re: question about startup and firestarter

Have you checked this ?

Firestarter Internet connection sharing

Sidenote : in my experience using a physical NAT/NAPT router is a lot easier than setting up ICS.
(It doesn't seem to matter if you do it with M$ or linux)

Re: question about startup and firestarter

good read, i have it bookmarked, thanks.
i may set up a physical nat at some point. But the irritation i have only involves me having to start firestarter after a reboot (happens less than once/week)

thanks much
