Subject: IPF/IPNat router/gateway
Hello. I apologize for asking a question which has been asked several
dozen times before, but none of the prior-offered solutions seem to
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
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
IP of the BSD box is 192.168.1.1, mask 255.255.255.224 on the internal
the lone machine connected to it at the moment is set on
...and rc.conf has gateway_enable, ipfilter_enable and ipnat_enable
all set to "YES"
I used this great howto to get my ipfilter gateway going:
"however, a machine plugged into the BSD box
is unable to ping the BSD box and vice versa."
When you connect a XP to the Freebsd you still using Hub right?
Or crossover cable?
