I have just set up a NW65/BM38 machine and I can not get the workstation
to access the internet.

From the server I can ping yahoo.com and my workstation with filters
turned off.

public 68.121.xxx.xx

From the workstation I can only ping the servers private address not
the public address.

My wkstation gateway is the nwprivate Address.

When I first enabled the default filters I later found that both my lan
and wan nics were set to public. I changed the lan to private but I
believe I messed it up by doing this.

Am I correct in believing that if filters are disabled my client
wkstations can access the the internet? and I am wide open to hackers?

I have two weeks to get this set up for my company.
Any help is appreciated
