if it is selinux (I am just guessing that might be part of the problem), then
try editing /etc/sysconfig/selinux amd set SELINUX=disabled.

another option I thought of is Advanced Routing not being part of your kernel,
but if you run a stock fedora kernel, that is not the case. If you run your
own compiled kernel, check that CONFIG_IP_ADVANCED_ROUTER is enabled.
