I do appreciate them very much.

However, I am going to leave this issue alone right now.

I am trying to make my BSD machine into an IP router.

I have done everything that the documentation suggests but I have a feeling
I am missing something or something is left out:

I have:

a) Compiled a kernel with options: IP FIREWALL and IPDivert

b) I have rc.conf set with gateway enable

c) I have two NICS

d) The BSD machine can ping the internet

e) My internal machines can ping both NIC's of the BSD, the one on their
logical subnet and the one with the external address.

f) My firewall type is " Open"

However, internal machines cannot ping anything on the internet

When a client on the inside makes an external request, I get the following
message from the BSD console:

" /Kernel: arp: ( my win2k client ) is on xl1 but got reply
00:10:4b:2a:32:e5 on xl0"

Xl0 is my external ip address ( 255.2555.255.0)
xl1 is my internal address 	( )

Can you help?
