Stanley, If you are using natd and have recompiled your kernel with the appropriate options then this should work for you. These are entries to your /etc/rc.conf, (just a starting point, you can fine tune to your needs): gateway_enable="YES" firewall_enable="YES" firewall_type="OPEN" firewall_quiet="YES" firewall_logging="YES" natd_enable="YES" natd_interface="fxp0" natd_flags="-f /etc/natd.conf"
In the above statement natd_interface="fxp0", fxp0 is the outside nic of your system. Next put these statements in your /etc/natd.conf file as referenced above, (natd.conf doesn't exist by default, you'll create it): same_ports yes dynamic yes redirect_port tcp inside_address:port outside_address:port redirect_port udp inside_address:port outside_address:port As shown above, don't forget to redirect udp traffic if the service you're trying to facilitate needs it. Also know that the ports for the inside and the outside don't have to match. For example, my service provider blocks http/port 80 traffic coming in to my connection so my statement in the natd.conf file would be something like: redirect_port 192.168.1.10:80 outside_address:8080 By doing so outside connectivity attempts to my isp assigned address have to be stated as: http://outside_address:8080. FYI if you ever want to host gaming sessions on an inside system like Counter strike or Unreal Tournament, then put a couple of lines like these in your natd.conf file, (these examples are ones that I used so that my buddies and I could blast away in Unreal Tournament): redirect_port tcp inside_address:7777-7781 outside_address:7777-7781 redirect_port udp inside_address:7777-7781 outside_address:7777-7781 As you make these changes you can apply them without restarting by running /etc/netstart. Hope that helps. -Randy -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Stanley Chan Sent: Friday, January 01, 1999 9:10 AM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: redirect port Dear Friends, The example in the NAT documents is sufficient, can anyone tell me how to redirect ports in the NAT machine. How to put the following command in the rc.conf ? I want to use one of the amchine behind the NAT to run web server. -redirect_port tcp 192.168.0.2:6667 6667 -redirect_port tcp 192.168.0.3:80 80 Thanks Sanley _______________________________________________ [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]"
