IP Forwarding

If you are looking to use your Windows XP box as a router, one of the first things you will need to do is enable IP forwarding. Previously, NT and 2000 provided a checkbox in your network settings GUI to easily turn routing on, but with XP it`s no longer an easy-to-toggle checkbox.

But, given the following registry edit, you`ll be on your way to routing packets from one network to another. Set this key to one to enable routing, or zero to disable (disabled is the default):
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\
Tcpip\Parameters\IPEnableRouter


Watch out for line wrap.
