The following problem is just a piece of the bigger solution I have a problem with. All other elements seem working so far, so I'll try to describe very small piece which I have problem with.
I've got a linux machine, with tun0 (tunneling interface) and eth0 (witch is my default gateway to the internet).
Goal: my goal is to receive packets incoming from tun0, and forward them to the default gateway. So actually quite simple NAT case, where I want to "share" internet with tun0 which fakes physical interface.
Tun has been created using
sudo openvpn --mktun --dev tun0 --user USER sudo ip addr add 10.2.0.1/24 dev tun0 sudo ip link set tun0 up
So I have it up and running, I can ping it etc. Furthermore, I have C++ application, which attaches to this TUN device, can read from and write to it. (fti: here is a tutorial I've followed: http://backreference.org/2010/03/26/tuntap-interface-tutorial/)
I dumped some correct ICMP (ping) request made to 18.104.22.168 into the byte array in C++. Now, using my program I write it to the tun0 device. ICMP request has
- source (10.2.0.10) - so kernel knows the route back (the same subnet)
- destination (22.214.171.124) - Google's DNS
- correct checksum etc. (in Wireshark /TShark it appears correctly on tun0)
Then, I have following routes:
iptables -F # flush iptables --table nat --append POSTROUTING --out-interface eth0 -j MASQUERADE iptables --append FORWARD --in-interface tun0 -j ACCEPT
And here I'm stuck :( Packet does not get forwarded to the default gw (tshark sees it only on tun0 as received which i guess it's correct)
What's missing? Maybe some alternative approach (but it has to be done using tun device, and I have to be able to r/w to it). Additional info:
- forwarding is enabled (/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward)
- 126.96.36.199 is reachable through eth0 (from local)
- default gateway is correct (from ISP via eth0)
- i've tried switching off rp_tables(echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/eth5/rp_filter)
- and many others...
Thanks in advance for any hints!
