I'm assisting someone in setting up a FreeBSD 4.8 server and have a few
questions. Basically, this person has a LAN that is connected to the
internet via a cable modem and has a linksys router. The FreeBSD machine is
just another machine on the network.
They have setup a few daemons on the FBSD box and now want to give the
internet access to it. The main problem we're running into is that, while
the local network has access to the box via the private IP, the internet
doesn't and the box doesn't have internet access. Obviously, I can solve the
problem of the internet reaching the box by using port forwarding and
forwarding traffic to the FBSD box. But what about giving the FBSD box net
access? How do I tell it to use the same gateway as the other clients on my
I've gone through the handbook and either I am missing something or I am not
understanding properly. Can anyone help?
