I found a slight hiccup.  I rebooted the server, and noticed that it's
stopped working.  I went and looked at the /etc/network/if-up.d/ltsp-nat
file and can see the entry for '-A POSTROUTING -s -j

I had to do the command 'sudo iptables --table nat --append POSTROUTING
--jump MASQUERADE  --source' to get it to work again.  I've
done this twice now to make sure I wasn't missing something.

I'm on 8.10.
