    2727If you are using Debian then you're in luck. You will find a full tutorial for setting up IPTABLES for NAT Linux Proxy Server at http://www.aboutdebian.com/proxy.htm. Just follow the rules there, test to ensure that you can connect to the internet via your wireless interface with the rules in place, and then and only then try your wifidog client installation.  Don't forget to read the tutorial all the way through, and MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN GET AN INTERNET CONNECTION THROUGH THE WIRELESS INTERFACE NOW!

     29Security Update!! By using the proxy script from Debian you are leaving your wifidog router PC open to SSH access by your wireless clients which probably isn't a good idea! If you want to prevent this, add this firewall rule to the proxy script:

     31{{{ 
     32# Chris's rule to stop port 22 traffic 
     33iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -i $INTIF --dport 22 -j DROP 
     34}}}

    2936 * Navigate to '''/usr/src/''' and grab a copy of wifidog '''wget URL-HERE''' You then need to decompress it '''gunzip WIFIDOG-FILE''' then untar '''tar -xvf yourcopyofwifidog'''.
