It should be OK. Did you do "/etc/rc.d/netif restart"
& "/etc/rc.d/routing restart"?

Keep in mind that the private networks are for private use.
And that the next hop router(the one thats connects to the
internet) will probably drop the packets on the floor, if
configured correctly?

Your wording was not very clear on the private network subject,
so I am clarifying a bit. You do not mention NAT or some other
mechanism that will allow you IP communication with other
hosts external to your network. Please post more info...
