Hi Lowell, Thanks for the info. You are right. I don't need the ip address for the external interface in order to configure the firewall. I couldn't understand the sample files that came with ipfw. I thought I had to follow the sample file the way it was given. Now I know I can change it to the way I want. Thanks once again. regds ed
