I have been trying in vain for 2 days to setup IPNAT for a small firm
here, but it doesn't seem to be fully functional.
Originally, I couldn't ping the external ip address of obsd from the
clients, so i setup nat and configured the clients to use the obsd box
as the default gateway, great, now i can ping the external (real
internet) ip addy. So i tried pinging www.yahoo.com,,,,, nothing.
I have read the faq, in fact i followed it to a tee, i read various
other howto's on sites out there, still they all say the same thing, I
am sure I have it right, but no joy
My internal is 192.168.1.1 - the client i was using was 192.168.1.10
and the external is a real ip
so in ipnat.rules i have map 192.168.0.0/16 -> <inet addy>/24
is this ok?
My routing table shows the correct dr for my domain and also the dns
It also shows the 2 links - link#1 and link#2 and they look fine
Is it possible that the main router could be blocking me? I asked if the
ip was registered on the router, he said 'yes it is'.
I am so down over this, the slightest help would be greatly appreciated
Let me know what info you need to see and I'll paste it if you need :))
Thanks people :)
