Since you mentioned it, It causes my OSX laptop to panic when it
initiates a packet... If a packet comes from my laptop first, it works
fine.. so, I can ssh from my laptop to a FreeBSD box, and it works
fine, and ping from my laptop, but if I were to ping from the FreeBSD
box to the MacOSX laptop, the laptop will die..
