Hi,

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 
/etc/network/interfaces:

iface eth0 inet static
   address my.public.ip
   netmask 255.255.255.255
   pointopoint my.provider.gw
   gateway my.provider.gw

I tried the following commands:

ifconfig vtnet0 inet my.public.ip my.provider.gw netmask 255.255.255.255
route add default my.provider.gw

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

How can I have this config under FreeBSD?


Thanks.
