I want to transfer my Fedora OS into router such that the PC has two NICs on it, so i want to connect two computers to this PC and let the Fedora OS acts as a router and make routes between these two PCs.

huh, it should be simple. just configure and bring up both of your NICs and route other computers through this box. """route ADD destinationIP GatewayPC_IP"""""

if you want this box be able to act like a wide area network simulator then you need some kind of application in it. FreeBSD has dummynet, i guess Fedora you have to download some 3rd party sw.


You will also need to enable IP Forwarding if your going to use the system as a router. in /etc/sysctl.conf, you would add the following lines

# Controls IP packet forwarding
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1

Then load the changes with "sysctl -p"
