Hello All, =0A=0AI am new to ipfw. Basically, on my box, i have 3 nics, 1 f=
or external Internet usage and 2 for internal lan usage : re0, re1. I want =
to sent ip traffic to re0, pass it on to ipfw to apply QoS on IP stream and=
 route it through re1 (and viceversa). I don;t need to have any external IP=
 traffic on re0 and re1. I tried bridging re0 and re1 which for some unknow=
n reason, only worked for 1 ip flow, pipe if you will. Thinking, there migh=
t be some bridging L2 and ip L3 issues, I am thinking for turning the box i=
nto a router, just to forward packets between re0 and re1 and then apply Qo=
S on it. I am using fixed internal IP addresses on re0 and re1. I have turn=
ed on ip forwarding. =0A=0Are0: flags=3D8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,M=

 should be using to forward ip traffic. Once I have a basic setup that can =
forward ip, i can then think of rule set for QoS via pipe and queues. syste=

box. Any help would be greatly appreciated. =0A=0AThanks in advance, =0Akho=
