[plug] Gateways and Windoze

We have a firewall/gateway set up using ipchains and Red Hat 6.0. On the same
box, the server, we have samba operational, which apparently works with the
Windoze 95 on Anne's computer.

I am running Red Hat 5.2 with Netscape Communicator 4.07 on my computer, for
Internet access.

The problem is that Anne wants to use IE4 for Internet access on her computer,
as apparently she can use key combinations instead of a mouse, as using a mouse
gives her problems, due to too many hours over too many years at computers and
computer terminals.

But, while connecting my computer running Red Hat 5.2 to the Internet, via the
gateway, is no problem, we cannot get either Windoze 95 or Windoze NT to connect
to the Internet via the gateway. She can access web pages on our intranet web
server, which is the gateway server, but cannot get out to the Internet via the
gateway on the server.

Can someone please advise?
