Well, i assume you managed it last time with something along the lines of:
ipfwadm -F -a accept -m -S
The above will work, anyway, assuming you have masquerading in your
kernel and /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward set to 1.
So what you need is a way to make this happen every time you boot up.
so put the script at the end of either:
/etc/init.d/boot (for debian)
/etc/rc.d/rc.local (for redhat)
or wherever else suits you depending on your distribution or how you have
set the machine up.
