 This is almost a FAQ as it comes up every second month on the list as
 well.  The answer always is - if you enable raw socket, do NOT use ping.
 Ping does it's own way to pick your source address.  Try telnet
 without -s and see what the SYN thinks for example.  You might even
 be able to check with netstat inside the jail not needing to tcpdump
 on base.
 Does this help?

           Stop bit received. Insert coin for new address family.
