Disable packet forwarding on SLES 10 SP 3 (OES2)

Hi,
Possible silly question.
I found that my OES server is forwarding packets - when I setup on workstation server IP as router (ordinary internal file server) it is forwarding packets (acting as internal router).
How to block that ?
Regards,
Maciej

sudo cat 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

See if that helps. If it does, go into Yast to the kernel settings and
make that persistent in the sysctl section, or set it with the sysctl
command from the command line.

Good luck.
