I am new to FreeBSD. I am evaluating it as a possible replacement for my

I installed 4.9 without a hitch and decided to go ahead and install 5.2 in
order to avoid potential upgrade issues mentioned on the BSD wed site.

I am having problems with internet connection sharing. The computer is
seeing my network but is not seeing the Internet through my gateway
computer. I think that I may have incorrectly entered the gateway IP
during install. I have checked the FAQ and HandBook for the name and
location of the file that contains the Gateway IP with no success.

Can you please help me locate this file so I can confirm my settings.

Hi, Lance,

You have received some good advice already.  One
further note:  If you have already booted a FBSD box
*without* having proper gateway information in /etc/rc.conf,
simply type (as root):

#route add default

where is the IP of the desired
