I am no expert, but I can think of a few things:
- both machines have the proper gateway ip set (as just mentioned in email)
- the freebsd box rc.conf not setup properl
- should be setup to be defaultrouter=YES and gateway=YES
or something like that
- the windows machines with the resources might not allow
connections from machines on other subnets (there is a security setting
which blocks connections from 'the internet')
You should try pinging from one subnet to the other to make sure it works!
Lastly, if pinging does work:
Do you have samba on the freebsd machine, if you are sharing printers/hard
disks, I am fairly sure you need the gateway machine to have samba running,
because you need to setup samba on the gateway to collect a 'list' of all the
resources on both networks, so that the machines on both side know where your
resources are. This is because windows detects shared resources using a
network broadcast, that is it sends a message to x.y.z.* to work out what
mahines have shared resources.
