Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue for you? Thanks in advance.

Things remain the same under Gutsy. Just installed a router recently and net.ipv4.conf.all.forwarding=1 is exactly what enables routing.

This is a router-specific option. For the general use case (i.e. a sane default), this option should stay "0".

Ah, misread. You're interested in adding:

#net.ipv4.conf.all.forwarding=1
