I just setup a freebsd box with the 5.1 release to be a gateway/firewall. The installation was smooth and to setup the gateway/firewall with nat a lot of sources are available on Internet. Here is my problem, I can't connect to Internet from the Freebsd box. I have DSL and my ISP is AT&T, I have a static IP wich means I don't need to run PPP to connect.
FreeBSD Internet NIC is : 12.103.20.x
When I type ifconfig my NIC looks fine, up and running :
rl0 : 12.103.20.x
For information the freebsd box contains 2 NIC's one for Internet the other for the LAN (192.168.1.1)
If I ping myself no problem everything's fine, but I can't ping a web address. I don't know if it is possible under unix but I use to "ping www.yahoo.com" for example to know if it's well connected. But the best proof is when I try to install samba my freebsd gives a time out reaching the samba server on the web....
Do you have dns servers listed in /etc/resolv.conf? nameserver <nameserver> nameserver <nameserver>
arp -n -a , does that mention the router's ip and mac addres?
Try it (:
