Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now. Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related. I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress (and you can read about that here). Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the new FreeBSD Diary website.

See also, natd.

At this point, I had both network cards running.  From the FreeBSD machine I could ping the outside world via ed0 and my subnet via ed1.   The next step was to ping the outside world from elsewhere on my subnet.

I've modified my system to start DHCP and natd automatically when the system starts up.  I have changed the /etc/rc.local file to contain (NOTE:  /etc/rc.local is deprecated; use /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ instead; see Starting stuff at boot time and Installing IP Filter 3.3.3 for an example):

dhclient ed0
ifconfig ed1 inet 10.0.0.10 255.255.255.0
natd -f /etc/natd.conf

But my filtering rules need some adjustment.  For details on that, see Filtering.
