> HI All,
I have a FreeBSD 9.1 Release installed with TWO NIC cards. I was trying to
make this FreeBSD machine as a router .
This is my rc.conf
ifconfig_rl0 = "inet netmask"
ifconfig_re0="inet netmask"

gateway_enable = "YES"
ifconfig_rl0 = "DHCP"
ifconfig_re0 = "DHCP"

defaultrouter = ""
ipv6_activate_all_interfaces = "YES"
sshd_enable = "YES"

Please help me to establish a IPv4 router.
Both the interfaces are connected to to different laptops with a static IP

Laptop 1 =  ( connected to interface rl0) gateway  -

Laptop 2 = ( connected to interface re0)
ping from Laptop1 -> rl0 is successful
but ping from Laptop1 -> re0 is not successful.

After this I want to know also How to make this as IPv6 router?
