I want to add a public IP of my hosting provider to a FreeBSD VM. To do 
this I have to reach a remote gateway with a point to point connection 
but I didn't how how to do that on FreeBSD. Under Debian GNU/Linux, I 
just have to add the gateway to the "pointopoint" parameters in 

iface eth0 inet static
   address my.public.ip

I tried the following commands:

ifconfig vtnet0 inet my.public.ip netmask
route add default

When I tried to add the default route, I get "Network is unreachable".

How can I have this config under FreeBSD?
