Hello. I apologize for asking a question which has been asked several dozen times before, but none of the prior-offered solutions seem to work.
I'm trying to use a freeBSD box (v 5.1) as a gateway/router for my network. I've got a static IP range for the network, but can't get things running. (...the local machines are all running Windows XP Pro) The local machines can connect to my ISP when they're plugged in to the uplink, whether individually or through a hub, and the freeBSD box can as well. ...however, a machine plugged into the BSD box is unable to ping the BSD box and vice versa. IPF is set to pass in/out quick all from any to any IPNat has the following rules set: map rl0 192.168.1.0/24 -> x.x.x.254/32 portmap tcp/udp 10000:40000 map rl0 192.168.1.0/24 -> x.x.x.254/32 IP of the BSD box is x.x.x.254, mask 255.255.255.224 on the external NIC IP of the BSD box is 192.168.1.1, mask 255.255.255.224 on the internal NIC the lone machine connected to it at the moment is set on IP 192.168.1.2, mask 255.255.255.224, gateway 192.168.1.1 ...and rc.conf has gateway_enable, ipfilter_enable and ipnat_enable all set to "YES" thanks. _________________________________________________________________ Stop worrying about overloading your inbox - get MSN Hotmail Extra Storage!
