    Hi Tim,

    I absolutely agree with you and it’s my mistake not to put the sites where I referred some of the scripts from. However, it’s not from the link you posted in your comment.

    MASQUARADE wasn’t supported on my server, but this command did the job:

    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j SNAT –to-source

    Argh, the command in my comment got mangled. Second attempt:
    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j SNAT –to-source [venet0’s ip address]

    Thanks! Yes the routing is the tricky part and depends largely on the host. Which is why I did state what I did worked on the host I was using. ­čÖé

    root@cf:~# iptables –table nat -A POSTROUTING -o venet0 -j MASQUERADE
    iptables v1.4.12: can’t initialize iptables table `nat’: Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?)
    Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
