I am getting a constant error in Freebsd 4.0 with Natd .. goes like this:
natd: failed to write packet back (host is down) . Static IP address and only happens when connected to the isp, change the IP address and run it locally as a gateway, no errors? Ran a packet trace and found nothing. Please help! I am on a cable modem...shut down all local machines on the lan and still got the problem. mesg n works well, but does not solve the issue:) If I unplug from the cable modem, I do not get the error. I disabled all services that may need a connection. Arp -a shows one (incomplete) [ethernet] error on a broadcast address. My ISP blocks me from that address anyway...I am x.x.31.x/21 and I cannot talk to x.x.30.x/21 or x.x.29.x/21 for security reasons and the incomplete is on x.x.29.255. I would appreciate any help...yes, I have tried ipnat and IPF, but could not ping to the world from a workstation. That is a convenience that I would like to have.
