There is increasing use of Internet in a LAN environment. Reliance on hardware and software that are mostly costly and difficult to maintain brings about problems for organisations with a small budget. Moreover, many networks available in these types of organisations, especially schools and colleges, are not fully utilised. This is especially true in terms of access to the Internet, Besides being a viable alternative to proxy server softwares, IP masqeurading allows the interconnection of subnetworks and distribution of gateways in a multiple internal LAN environment. For the server, which acts as the gateway to the Internet, Freesco, an IP masqeurading distribution which is Linux based, is used. The Windows 2000 OS is used on the client machines, A distributed gateway based on alternative routes to other gateways in different subnetworks will minimise the event of users having disconnection problems. Hence this ensures reliable and continuous Internet connection through an alternative subnetwork in the event of a connection failure in an adjoining subnetwork.
