Most people only get one real IP from their ISP, and then use "private" IPs (such as 192.168.0.x or 10.0.0.x) for the rest of their machines. If you're doing such, you'll either need exciting nat rules on the gateway, or some other workaround. -- Bill Moran Potential Technologies http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
