So either add a route on the adsl router something like route add -net 193.X.X.X netmask 255.255.255.240 10.A.A.A or put a static route on each host on the 10.X.X.X network with 10.A.A.A as the default route for 193.R.R.R > Thanks in Advance > Jim Xohellis > > > > ____________________________________________________________ > Do You Yahoo!? > Αποκτήστε τη δωρεάν @yahoo.gr διεύθυνση σας στο http://www.otenet.gr > _______________________________________________ > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
