(Answer) (Category) Linux on PowerPC FAQ-O-Matic : (Category) MkLinux :
MkLinux won't route between ethernet and PPP
The MkLinux server is compiled with IP forwarding turned off. Even with ethernet and PPP setup and operating, and a static route established, routing will not take place. The solution is to recompile the server from the source. A number of compilation options are presented at the beginning of the build. Answer "YES" (not the default!!) to the question "Enable IP forwarding?" Then your MkLinux machine should route between ethernet and PPP.
Since the early GENERIC kernels (sometime before #05), forwarding has been compiled into the stock linux server.
