How do would I go about configuring FreeBSD 5.1 to be a leased line server? Basically a mail server and gateway.
I can get a null modem to connect and obtain an IP address. But I am only able to access the machine from outside if there is a "default_router" for my network.
Here is my rc.conf file:
#defaultrouter="192.168.1.4" hostname="bsd.adept.co.za" ifconfig_rl0="inet 192.168.1.145 netmask 255.255.255.0" inetd_enable="NO" kern_securelevel_enable="NO" linux_enable="YES" saver="daemon" sendmail_enable="YES" sshd_enable="YES"
network_interfaces="rl0 ppp0" router_enable="NO"
gateway_enable="YES" firewall_enable="YES" firewall_type="OPEN" natd_enable="YES" natd_interface="ppp0" natd_flags=""
I cannot ping any external addresses from the box.
I have already compiled my kernel for IP forwarding as stated in the handbook.
The other thing, is that my connect script doesn't run at startup, even though i have put it in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ . But that is minor for now.
What have I done incorrectly and what else do i still need to do?
