    Forwarding wireless traffic (wl0.1)

    Hi all, I am trying, unsuccessfully, to route all traffic from one of my guest networks. I thought I'd copy the routing that Merlin used for the TOR setup (I want to route to the TOR proxy) so I tried this: iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i wl0.1 -p udp --dport 53 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 9053...
