Thanks Khaled, and Ankit. Let me go and try this out, and I will get back with questions if I have any. Thanks.

comment What do I need to do to set my computer as Default Gateway?
Yes Khaled, but didn't you just say that the NIC will drop the packets not addressed to it (which they won't be because they are addressed to the server, but coming to the NIC because it is the default gateway). I am sorry for all this confusion.

comment What do I need to do to set my computer as Default Gateway?
Aha, I see. So I need to configure it for IP forwarding even if I plan to process the packets. Maybe I need to read up on the IP forwarding part of it. Because now, I am confused. Do I need to do something special to prevent it from auto-forwarding if I want to do some processing on the packet before sending it on the Outer interface.

comment What do I need to do to set my computer as Default Gateway?
This is perfect. Here are some more comments. I am guessing that I don't have to do the IPv4 forwarding since I don't want the packets to be forwarded as is (or maybe I do, not sure yet). For processing, we are writing the code in Python. This code is already working with the Multi-cast messages. Quick question: if i don't do anything special to make it a default gateway, won't the Inner network card simply drop the packets sent to it (but not meant for it).

Thank you for the information. I did study the OSI model in school, but I guess that study needs revision.
