Here you go.., You have given the same IP Addr / netmasks information to
both rl0 & rl1 - this is not right.

In your earlier message, you mentioned that rl0 is connected to a cable
modem and rl1 is connected to a lan. rl0 should have a different IP
address.., indeed a different network altogether as against rl1.

To make life easier, you should configure rl1 with another completely
different RFC1918 IP address. So if you're using 192.168.x.x for rl0,
use an IP addr from the 172.16.x.x or 10.x.x.x ranges for rl1.

Your set up appears to be that of a gateway. If so, google for "dual
homed hosts" and have a read of what is required to set it all up.

Thanks heaps! Now I understand. It didn't _seem_ right to have two identical IPs, but I didn't know what else to do :-[
It will all work, now.
