    I am using a Linux box as a firewall between my cable modem and my
    home network. It's an older version of Redhat, using ipchains. I
    have successfully set ipchains to masquerade all my home traffic out
    to the net for web browsing, e-mail, etc.

    Now I want to add XBox Live to the mix. (Actually, I will need to do
    this on Christmas morning.)

    I have already opened up the firewall to the three ports I believe
    XBox Live needs: udp 88, udp 3074, and tcp 3074. The XBox still
    can't connect.

    I believe I need to forward packets on these ports from the internet
    to the XBox's private IP address, using ipchains. I've been messing
    about for a couple of days without success.

    What should I be doing?
