That makes a lot of sense, but I suppose I still don't understand why this isn't working. The handbook section on routing is pretty basic and it seems to come down to setting net.inet.ip.forwarding to 1 if you want to route packets between interfaces on a dual-homed host. I'm able to reach hosts on both subnets from the router and my routing table looks like:
Internet: Destination Gateway Flags Refs Use Netif Expire default wireless UGS 0 9905 sis0 localhost localhost UH 0 134 lo0 192.168.1 link#1 UC 0 0 sis0 orinoco 00:d0:09:f8:f7:5a UHLW 1 268 lo0 192.168.1.255 ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff UHLWb 1 87 sis0 192.168.2 link#2 UC 0 0 rl0 192.168.2.255 ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff UHLWb 1 87 rl0 On 9/29/07, Christopher Cowart <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > On Sat, Sep 29, 2007 at 07:06:55PM -0600, Simon Timms wrote: > > Hello, > > I seem to be having some trouble bridging interfaces in FreeBSD > 6.2-STABLE. > > What I have are two interfaces > > > > rl0 - 192.168.2.2 > > sis0 - 192.168.1.2 > > > > and a bridge I've set up following the pages in the handbook.
