That looks alright to me...

Are there any error messages relating to IPFW / natd on boot?

No, or at least none I could see. That's why I've asked for help.

What version of FreeBSD are you running?


What's the command
you're running that _does_ launch natd successfully?

"/sbin/natd -n ed1". I hadn't thought about "/etc/rc.d/natd start" until someone suggested it, but that works too and reads the interface from /etc/rc.conf.

 What's the
output of "ls -l /etc/rc.d/natd"?

[poppy] ~# ls -l /etc/rc.d/natd
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  978 May 31 09:52 /etc/rc.d/natd
