you would also want: net.inet.ip.forwarding: 1 so that packets get forwarded between the interfaces. and then if you plan to use IPFW over the bridge you would want: net.link.ether.bridge_ipfw: 1 or if you are using a fairly recent -stable you can use ipfilter over the bridge with: net.link.ether.bridge_ipf: 1 -randall -- :// randall s. ehren :// voice 805.893.5632 :// systems administrator :// isber|survey|avss.ucsb.edu :// institute for social, behavioral, and economic research To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
