We have just moved offices and our freebsd machine has started complaining in the following terms

Oct 29 17:14:39 int kernel: arplookup ww.xx.yy.zz failed: host is not on local network

We have an external router connected as a dhcp server at which apparently has external address ww.xx.yy.zz. I am using a fixed ip address ie

I have this in my rc.conf

ifconfig_em0="inet  netmask"

and have dns mapping --> ww.xx.yy.zz,

If you tell the machine that it is and you set up DNS which claims that hostname has an external IP, it will be sad because it doesn't know how to reach that IP. You can use DNS split-horizon / views to return the internal IP when the machine asks, or simply keep your external and internal names separate. Ie, set up DNS like:  A  A  ww.xx.yy.zz


On the machine I have set the local names to point to in the hosts file.

I have not set up any dns except externally. I suppose that packets are arriving and being routed via NAT into the internal server which claim to be addressed to the router's external address.

Can I add some simple route that fixes this?
