IPFW has one list of rules (with option to select in/out) that result in the behavure as you describe. I have a example on my home page where i select incomming and outging package. Forward is a action just like, skipto, reject, allow and deny are. See man ipfw for more info. -- Alex Articles based on solutions that I use: http://www.kruijff.org/alex/index.php?dir=docs/FreeBSD/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
