What is IP Forwarding?

IP forwarding is also known as Internet routing. It is a process used to determine using which path a packet or datagram can be sent. IP forwarding is an OS option that allows a host to act as a router. A system that has more than one network interface card must have IP forwarding turned on in order for the system to be able to act as a router.
