gateway machine's kernel has been recompiled with:
gateway machine's /etc/rc.conf:
ifconfig_xl0="inet 129.x.x.35 netmask 255.255.255.0"
ifconfig_xl1="inet 10.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0"
second machine's /etc/rc.conf:
ifconfig_xl0="inet 10.0.0.2 netmask 255.0.0.0"
'ipfw list' on the gateway machine gives me:
00050 divert 8668 ip from any to any via xl0
00100 allow ip from any to any via lo0
00200 deny ip from any to 127.0.0.0/8
00300 deny ip from 127.0.0.0/8 to any
65000 allow ip from any to any
65535 allow ip from any to any
i'm following the instructions in the handbook http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.IS...dbook/natd.html
"Each machine and interface behind the LAN should be assigned IP address numbers in the private

this isn't working for me. i cannot ping outside machines from the client machine. 'ping www.freebsd.org'

Let me ask some questions to help diagnose this:
1. From the gateway: Can you ping www.freebsd.org? Can you ping 129.x.x.1?
2. What's in /etc/resolv.conf on the gateway and the client machine?
3. What does ifconfig display on the gateway? Does xl1 show as "up" with a valid media type?
Do your net card and hub both have link lights?
