How do would I go about configuring FreeBSD 5.1 to be a leased line
server? Basically a mail server and gateway.
I can get a null modem to connect and obtain an IP address. But I am
only able to access the machine from outside if there is a
"default_router" for my network.
Here is my rc.conf file:
ifconfig_rl0="inet 192.168.1.145 netmask 255.255.255.0"
I cannot ping any external addresses from the box.
I have already compiled my kernel for IP forwarding as stated in the
The other thing, is that my connect script doesn't run at startup, even
though i have put it in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ . But that is minor for now.
What have I done incorrectly and what else do i still need to do?
