They are.

No, I'm not. The agreement with my ISP doesn't allow to connect more than one 
computer to the WAN.

Part of my network's configuration is not in /etc/rc.conf . I have there only 
ifconfig_rl0="DHCP" to connect to the Internet. I used these commands to 
configure the LAN:
#ifconfig rl0 alias

On the second PC:
#ifconfig fxp0

It's based on this, what is in the Handbook about IPv4 networks.
