    Connecting Virl Hosted on Packet to External Networks


      Hi I've been trying to connect Virl Hosted on Packet to my home lab \ Internet for a few days now. I've been using OpenVPN to manage nodes via Putty from my workstation fine. but I just can't get my head around how to connect to the rest of my network.


      I found this post  Re: VIRL on Packet: External Internet access on here which looked promising until I got to the below instruction:


      - add the following to your /etc/rc.local file [as root]:

      - sysctl -w net.ipv4.conf.all.forwarding=1

      - iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE


      I think I must be missing something really obvious because I can't find this information anywhere, but how do you get to the /etc/rc/local file to edit it? I've been looking in UWMAdmin and VM Maestro for where I might be able to edit this file but I can't find it. If anyone could please point me in the right direction it would be a huge help.
