I've bought a router/gateway from my provider (Telekom/T-Online) which is called "Speedport W 502V Typ A" an has the ip address 192.168.2.1; it is connectet to an ethernet card (rl0).
192.168.2.1/24 is in a different network than 192.168.10.1/24. Your gateway and your workstation will not be able to communicate with one another.
Then I assigned an address (e. g. 192.168.10.1) to the ethernet card with the help of
and made it the default route: route add default 192.168.10.1
You essentially gave yourself an address outside of the gateways LAN address scope, and then proceeded to route all unknown traffic to yourself.
You probably want: # ifconfig rl0 192.168.2.100 255.255.255.0 ...and # route add default 192.168.2.1 Then, for name resolution: # echo "nameserver ip.of.isp.dns" >> /etc/resolv.conf Regards, Steve _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
