The latest linux kernel includes support for IP Masquerading, so "private
lans" can share a dialup gateway. What (if any) support does FreeBSD have for
doing this. I have the most recent PPP binaries, but the routed command, when
invoked with -q, returns "no route to hosts" or "can't assign requested
address", and I get the effect described in the PPP manpages, namely the
gateway host can see the internet via my ISP but *is not forwarding* packets
back to my private LAN. I have invoked ppp with the -alias subcommand and
given the static route to my ISDN-modem-equipped Freebsd (2.2.1) machine, but
IP forwarding never seems to occur. I have even tried to remake the kernel
using MROUTED, but it seems to me routed itself *ought* to work? Anybody with
experience getting this setup to work?
