That's probably because you're pinging them via the internal address, not
the external address. If you've got a little router, it's grabbed the
internal names. If not, then this is interesting, but the same fundamental

Okay, did you try setting up the /etc/resolv.conf on the FreeBSD boxes to
match the one on the Mac OS X machine?


It's also possible it's your route tables. But tell me first if you've got a
small home router that you're connecting everything via.
