	I have a question that I thought that you could probably answer. =
I have setup a freebsd seedbox in my apartment.  This box has two =
internet connections (multi-homed server.). One is an ethernet =
connection behind a firewall that is connected to a Comcast modem. The =
other is my apartment's wifi. I desire to use the wifi for torrenting =
and my connection for http,ftp, and ssh access. The proper ports have =
been forwarded to the freebsd server from the firewall on the Comcast =
connection.  My problem is when the default route is set to go over the =
wifi, i cannot access the server from the comcast modem address. When my =
default route is set to go over the modem, my server is accessible to =
the outside world.

Due to the nature of the torrent-dameon i am using. I must have the =
default route go over the wifi connection. Is there a route i can add =
that will fix my problem?=20

Thanks for your help.
