Thanks for this.  My problem is that my /etc/jail.conf is already very 

     exec.start = "/bin/sh /etc/rc";
     exec.stop = "/bin/sh /etc/rc.shutdown";
     path = "/local/jails/$name";
     mount.fstab = "/etc/jail/fstab.${name}";
     host.hostname = "${name}.local";
     devfs_ruleset         = "4";
     norman {
         ip4.addr = "";
         interface = "igb0";

and my jail's /etc/rc.conf even simpler than yours

     # cat /etc/rc.conf

But still 'host www.freebsd.org' times out within the jail.

There's something important about jail networking that I'm not 
understanding, but I haven't a clue what it is.  Most frustrating.

Best wishes,
