Question Possible need for a FORWARDING="y/n" setting 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues

Okay, I've got a set of wireless ethernet cards, and while frankly I would not recommend people doing this excepting in certain situations, I found a need last night for turning on ip_forwarding for the interface created by pcmcia-cs for them. This normally defaults to off (unless you turn on forwarding globally, in which case you should go stand in the corner now) but some people might have a genuine need to do this.

I know this probably seems like a minor thing, but I want to know if anyone else has any opinions on the subject of whether or not they think an IP_FORWARDING="y/n" option would be apropos for the /etc/pcmcia/network.opts file.

(For the record, I would not normally use forwarding blatantly across the interface. I'm working with Free S/WAN to get an encrypted connection authenticated by secret key which DOES have forwarding turned on)
