I am having problems with my gateway after upgrading from 4.11 to 5.4. The
firewall rules that worked in 4.11 are not working in 5.4. A am able to
access the internet from the gateway but not its clients. The only ruleset I
can get to work is the "open" ruleset that is supplied with the distribution.
When I use the ruleset that work with 4.11 or the "simple" ruleset (modified
to work with my network) the clients can access the gateway but not the
internet . My ISP provides a NAT router which does not provide the ability
to disable NAT. I have cometed out all the lines that block packets from
I have compiled the IPFIREWALL and IPDIVERT options into the kernel and I
have setup setup rc.conf see bellow. Access to the internet seems slow it
takes a long time for a page to download. When performing a ping test the ip
address is resolved quickly so I do not think it is DNS.
Is there anything that has changed from 4.11 to 5.4 that would cause this
ifconfig_fxp0="192.168.245.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
