Hello everyone, (sorry if this double-posts, I sent from my unsubscribed work-email account the first time around...)
I have a machine running FreeBSD6 happily humming along in a (remote) datacenter. I managed to get mpd running thanks to this ( http://web.archive.org/web/20050507010741/http://freebsdaddicts.org/forum/vi ewtopic.php?id=253 ) guide, and now I'm trying to set up NAT/DHCP on the server. I am doing this because I am trying to encrypt my network traffic over my school's network, because my tinfoil hat has been a lot thicker lately ;) The best visualization I can make of what I am trying to achieve is this: Windows2003 Laptop (school) ==> tunnel over internet ==> FreeBSD (datacenter) ==> whatever-part-of-the-internet-my-laptop-asked-for I can manage to make my laptop connect to my FreeBSD machine, but I can't contact any sites other than that FreeBSD Machine. Meaning, on my laptop, if I type: C:\Documents and Settings\Tom>ping google.com Pinging google.com [126.96.36.199] with 32 bytes of data: Control-C ^C I get nothing, but if I do: C:\Documents and Settings\Tom>ping a.b.c.190 Pinging a.b.c.190 with 32 bytes of data: Reply from a.b.c.190: bytes=32 time=101ms TTL=49 Reply from a.b.c.190: bytes=32 time=76ms TTL=49 Ping statistics for a.b.c.190: Packets: Sent = 2, Received = 2, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 76ms, Maximum = 101ms, Average = 88ms Control-C ^C I get a reply. (188.8.131.52 being the FBSD Machine) Is enabling internet access for the laptop just a case of adding gateway_enable="YES" and natd_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf then adding "/usr/sbin/dhcpd (network-alias) -q" to my startup scripts on the FreeBSD machine? If this is true, will natd work with only one network card with multiple IP addresses aliased to it(for example: vr0_alias0=a.b.c.190, vr0_alias1=a.b.c.191, vr0_alias2=a.b.c.192 ... vr0_alias9=a.b.c.199) Also, is it possible to assign the laptop one of the external IPs, so if user foo connects to a.b.c.194 (for the sake of argument), traffic gets forwarded to the laptop?
