I have 1 real IP sitting on xl0 on the gateway, and 1 real IP sitting on xl0 on the client (they both use xl0, coincidentally). The gateway's xl0 is configured for public IP xx.yy.zz.187 -- however, I'm doing redirect_address on xx.yy.zz.186, which isn't assigned to any interface. I suppose that's why my gateway could still access the Internet even though I had a redirect_address on. Hmmmm, I'm starting to feel like I've been misunderstanding how to use redirect_address . . . could it be that if I want to redirect a public IP to an interal host on my LAN, I must create an alias for that IP on the gateway's external interface? That would make sense -- otherwise, the NIC wouldn't know to use it. If so, where would I have read this? I'm not saying it's undocced; I'm sure it is, and so I'm wondering what I misread!
