 IP FIlter & bridge or routed ?
Author: Matthew Turany 
Date:   19-01-01 00:19

Okay,

Scenario: Setting up a gateway / firewall with two ethernet interfaces one goes to the internet and the other goes to the local LAN.

IP Filter looks pretty good, got a handle on the rules and I think I can even figure out ipnat, question is though;

Do I need to enable bridging in the kernel or should I just turn on routing in the rc.conf?

Or am I an idiot and don't even have to worry about either?

TIA

no to bridging.

Just add the kernel options for IPFilter. And turn on routing with /etc/rc.conf.

Hi..
I have 5 VLANs, 1 which goes to public IP for the internet, 10.60.64.1, 10.60.65.1, 10.60.66.1 and 10.60.67.1 to the LAN (for the school), how do I make sure that all the 64-67 can communicate with the public IP in the ipnat.conf ? I use FreeBSD 5.0 and I am really a green horn in it please advise
