Well a packet originating on the 193.x.x.x network will have a return
address on the 193.x.x.x network even after its been routed via the freebsd
box, (unless you nat, which if your adsl router is a rubbish as mine was you
may have to as i couldnt add static routes to mine, but thats another
issue.) and so the 10.R.R.R router wont know where to forward to if it has
no route to 10.x.x.x (or at least the sending host on that network.)
