I have a host on my local 192.168.0 / 24 subnet that works fine in getting to the Internet via a default route.via a wireless connection. I want to develop some custom link protocols and I have placed two Ethernet NICs in the box. I want to be able to send packets from one NIC to the other and maintain the link to the Internet. I've tried a large number of things via rc.conf but when I ping of the cards it is not going out the interface; it just gets looped back. (I test this by disconnecting the "crossover cable" between the two cards.)
My current rc.conf has the following attempt, but this fails. # router_enable="Yes" gateway_enable="Yes" # Ethernet 1: ifconfig_xl0="inet 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0" # Ethernet 2 ifconfig_rl0="inet 192.168.2.1 netmask 255.255.255.0" # # Set up loop between the two ethernet cards static_routes "xtor, rtox" route_rtox = "-host 192.168.1.1 192.168.2.1" route_xtor = "-host 192.168.2.1 192.168.1.1" Can I do what I want or must I have a second development box? -- Len _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
