hostname="idfubar.dyndns.org" is wrong. This needs to be a fake domain name. Dyndns.org is real name.
Hostname="idfubar.fbsdhome.com" is better. To enable NATD you need ipfw firewall. These two statements are options for IPFW/Nated. Your win box can not reach public internet because it's private ip address is non-routable on the public internet, that why they are reserved for LANs. 1) in /etc/rc.conf, I added the following natd_enable="YES" natd_interface="rl0" ### public interface connected to cable modem IPFW is not the firewall for the newbe, IPFILTER/IPNAT is easier. I have how-to if you are interested. BY the way you did real good job documenting your problem.

FreeBSD box and Win2k box can successfully ping each other, and FreeBSD box has working internet access. Everything has been freshly rebooted. Unfortunately, Win2k box cannot ping computers outside the local network. I'd like to share my internet connection (currently on my FreeBSD box only) with the Win2k box. Using a few articles I found on Google Groups, I got as far as this: FreeBSD Machine: (0) Generic Kernel, machine enabled as gateway using sysinstall, No firewall enabled (yet) (1) in /etc/rc.conf, I added the following natd_enable="YES" natd_interface="rl0" ### public interface connected to cable modem gateway_enable="YES" defaultrouter="192.168.0.1" ### LAN machines use this ifconfig_rl0="DHCP" ### Astound uses dhcp ifconfig_rl1="inet 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0" ### use for LAN hostname="idfubar.dyndns.org" (2) in /etc/resolv.conf, DNS servers from ISP are listed automatically: nameserver 18.104.22.168 nameserver 22.214.171.124 (3) in /etc/hosts, (within the netmask): 192.168.0.1 idfubar.dyndns.org 192.168.0.2 computer.dyndns.org Win2k Machine: (1) start-network&dialupConnections -localareaconnection -properties -TCP/IP-properties: IP address 192.168.0.2 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 default gateway 192.168.0.1 preferred DNS server 126.96.36.199 alternate DNS server 188.8.131.52 What else do I need in order to get my Win2k box surfing? _______________________________________________ [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]"
