router not forwarding...

Here is my topology..(all m/cs are RH 5.2 with 2.2.3 )

Box1 <-----> Box2 <-----> Box3

Box 2 is a router..(cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward has value 1)..and
the kernel is compiled as a router..

The route table for box 2 is :: (slightly snipped..)

Destination Gateway Genmask Iface * eth1 * eth1 * eth2 * eth0 * eth0 * lo

(why the duplication in route table..??)

Now what happens is packets go from 1 to 2 and also from 2 to 3 but not
from 1 to 3..why is that..This used to work before..till all of a sudden
seemed to stop working..

Also from 1 and 3 I can ping all the interfaces of 2..

Any suggestions..??
