I also have a same requirement , ie connecting an ubuntu machine with 2 LAN ports
one connected to internet and second one to local LAN.
I tried to configure this as router for remaining computers on network by enabling ip forwarding.unfortunately it is not working.

Can you please share the details if it worked fine for you ?
