To get NAT functionality from IPFW you need to add 'option divert' to your
kernel configuration file and recompile. fbsd was half right, it's all in
the handbook ;)...

"There are some additional configuration statements that need to be enabled
to activate the NAT function of IPFW. The kernel source needs 'option
divert' statement added to the other IPFIREWALL statements compiled into a
custom kernel."

Read the handbook closer for details on how to activate which ever
one you want to use.

Hi,

I've just installed a FBSD 6.1 box and I want to install Firewall
and NAT services.
The handbook Firewall chapter indicates to compile Firewall if you
want NAT.
But, I could not find in the GENERIC file the IPFIREWALL options.

Do you have an idea ?

Thanks,
Regi
