If your client machine's IP is not in the same subnet as the server, IP
forwarding must be on in the kernel (echo "1" >
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward) to forward packets (ie route) and you might
have to enable proxyarp in a similar fashon. Be sure that the client
(remote) machine's IP is on the same subnet as the rest of the computers (i
usually set the local ip to the linux machine) if you use proxy arp.

Also check your firewalling rules just in case.
