Hello Lanny.

Ref your FreeBSD machine...

Please check:
1) options gateway=YES on the /etc/sysconfig.
2) netmask on the network is the same on all machines in the same "net".
3) netstat -r shows a valid default gateway, that is a machine that the 
BSD can reach, using the ethernet interface. Ex:
	ifconfig ep0 netmask 0xffffff00
	route add default
        In this case the bsd can find the default gateway because the 
	machine "1" is in the mask 0xffffff00 of the ep0 interface.
	And this machine "1" knows how to talk to the internt. May be it 
	is a cisco router.

If you send me more data, I can help you to put the machine online.

Sergio Lenzi.
