I am using FreeBSD 4.0 and trying to use it as a gateway to the internet for
my windows 98 machine. I printed up the tutorial on the FreeBSD.org website
and followed all the directions. When I try to ping the windows 98 machine
I keep on getting host is down. My IP Addresses in the FreeBSD machine is
192.168.1.1 winger.my.domain winger #FreeBSD box
192.168.1.2 user.my.domain user #windows machine
My ifconfig shows the ethernet card as xl0 (3com 3c905TX) with flags=8843

I have the host name as winger.my.domain.
I have also configured the file rc.conf to setup the network interfaces for

for a few weeks now and have been able to solve all my problems exept for
