Hello!
I was know about this list from article "How to get best results from
the FreeBSD-questions mailing list" which i find on my freeBSD 4.5
RELISE CD, but i don't know about freebsd-net list... Please tell how
i can subscribe to it.

About bridgin - now it work, i think my misstake was what i'm
configure all ethernet adapter... But it worck only if computer in one
subnet ,like

       192.168.1.2<--->192.168.1.1<--->192.168.1.3
       win98            FreeBSD         win98
                        bridge
                        firewall

And it is necessary to me setup freebsd like:


       192.168.1.2-21<----->192.168.1.1<----->192.168.2.2-5
       net1                 192.168.2.1                net2
       (20 comp.            FreeBSD                    (4 comp.
       win98)               firewall                    win98/XP)

       computers from net2 must access net1 shared

I was try to forwart all packet from net1 to net2 and from net 2 to net 1
but when i ping a computer it recive packet with field 'from'
192.168.1.255 and it's don't work...
I was try to start routed and setup route table, but still don't
work...

So, maybe, you can tell me how i must to do that correct... Or, maybe, any
link with article or howto's...
I will be very grateful!
