I think more handholding would help this article a lot--it certainly would have helped me figure this out much faster. If no one disagrees, I'd like to add several sections on appropriate iptables rules to add. [[User:Buhman|Buhman]] 17:11, 9 April 2012 (EDT)

:No objections, all constructive contributions are welcome, just remember that an article shouldn't be just a list of instructions: "handholding" is fine as long as it also explains ''why'' something needs to be done, so in your example above the existent sentence should be kept and your iptables line should be presented just as an example. -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] 08:46, 10 April 2012 (EDT)

There are some things that I think would have been extremely helpful to add in this article, primarily relating to iptables. For example, in Routing_the_LAN_of_a_client_to_the_server it might have been useful to say, "do something like iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth1 -j SNAT --to 10.4.4.30" rather than "Use the iptables NAT feature to masquerade the IP packets."
