There is nothing wrong with having ANY IP address for a gateway (except .0
& .255)
Make sure you have a default entry in your routing table.  Use netstat -r,
and look for something like:
default             Atlas              UGS         0      207  ef0

If you dont see and entry use the following 'route add default' 
And that should solve the problem.  Also just for S&G make sure there is
an entry for the loopback interface (
Also, are you using this machine for outgoing PPP dialup to the Internet?
If so, check that ipforwarding is enabled via 'sysctl
net.inet.ip.forwarding'  It should return 1 for forwarding, 0 for no
forwarding, if it is 0 and this box is your gatekey use the 'sysctl
net.inet.ip.forwarding=1' to enable it!
Question?  Call or Write Me!
It's better to ask someone ALL the important questions, and understand
what they want, instead of flaming them.  So of the people that responded
should remember this!
