If yes, then you should have something like: hostname="buh.cameradicommercio.ro" ifconfig_rl0="inet 18.104.22.168 netmask 255.255.255.0" ifconfig_rl1="inet 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0" defaultrouter="22.214.171.124" where rl0 would be your outside interface connencted to your upstream provider's router with ip address 126.96.36.199 and rl1 would be the inside interface connected to a hub/switch with the internal machines. You would also want to use natd on the router, because 192.168/24 is a private address space. So you would add to you rc.conf: natd_enable="YES" natd_interface="rl0" firewall_enable="YES" firewall_type="OPEN" You need FIREWALL="YES" for natd to work. All this is very well explained in the FreeBSD Handbook, tahe a look at: 6.8 Setting Up Network Interface Cards 19.3 Wireless Networking -- IOnut Unregistered ;) FreeBSD "user" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
