 Re: Can I turn my freebsd box into a regular router

You are using terminology which I've not heard of before. That does not mean it is not correct.

I think what you mean is:

You want to use one server as a gateway. It will have one of the IP addresses from your ISP.

By clients, you mean machines behind the gateway.

Yes, FreeBSD can act as a router like this.

The question is: Why?

What types of services will you be supplying from these machines that require such a setup?
