I believe that net.inet.ip.forwarding is equivilant to gateway_enable in
rc.conf (enable the box as a router). I have no idea if the fwd is part of
that feature or not.
I can see IPFW picking up the fwd rule, but the box that it is forwarding
to does not see the traffic.
BTW, I am trying to forward proxy traffic from one box to another box (on
a remote network) just as a test. I'll eventually implement the theory in
a transparent proxy setup.
I'm just going to install the kernel and see what happens.
Tks for the info.
