Greetings, I am attempting to build a dual-homed firewall using FreeBSD 4.7 RELEASE. The PC is presently connected to a corporate LAN with DHCP and DNS servers and a broadband connection to the Internet.
The outside interface (rl0) is configured as follows: IP address: a.b.148.62 (dynamically assigned) Subnet: 255.255.248.0 Gateway: a.b.144.254 DNS: a.b.144.1 The inside interface (rl1) is configured as follows: IP address: 192.168.1.1 Subnet: 255.255.255.0 My private network consists of one workstation which is set up as follows: IP address: 192.168.1.2 Subnet: 255.255.255.0 Gateway: 192.168.168.1 DNS: a.b.144.1 When I use the "open" ruleset in /etc/rc.firewall, the workstation on my private network can get through the firewall to the LAN and the Internet. When I switch to the "simple" ruleset, the firewall stops forwarding packets. From the console, I can ping the outside and inside interfaces, but nothing else. Everything looks normal in dmesg.
