I realise my previous reply indicated I didn't read your post thoroughly
enough, sorry!

Although, taking into account all of the information in my previous
message, you should be able to place WinGate in front of the BSD NAT box
and have your WinGate default gateway set to the BSD NAT box.

Alternatively, as I said earlier, it is preferable to let your router be
the default gateway of your network, and let the hosts go out through your
FreeBSD machine (or WinGate machine).

This way, you can configure a client's default gateway to *either* your
FreeBSD or WinGate machine, and everything from that point on will go out
through your router.  This won't work, unfortunately, if you have to
initiate your PPP connection from Windows or FreeBSD.  If you do, you'll
*have* to layer NAT on NAT to preserve both gateways.
