Hope you have rebooted after enabling the gateway, but you can check this with " sysctl net.inet.ip.forwarding " :)

So far from the server side it looks OK for me, but what are you pinging actually?
How is done the configuration of the target device?
This sounds like a pure routing problem, as you do not use NAT, then the devices in the should know where to find your server.
The basic ideas are:
1. Make  default gateway for the devices in or
2.  route add -net 192.168.2 gw (syntax depends on the OS)

Also check if the device you ping accepts pings - many devices denies this by default, also Windows 7/2008 and later has firewall enabled which do not permits pings.
