 how to run games through a freebsd gateway/router
Author: Pascal Zoutendijk

Hi,

I recently installed freebsd at home to use it as a gateway for my internal network. When my firewall is setup up as "open", I have no problems playing Unreal tournament, but most of the other games just won't start a multiplayer session. When I set my firewall to "simple", none of the games comes through. I already figured out this had something to do with the ports on which the game server replies and I know that there are scripts like ip_masq_quakeII for linux, but I am wondering whether there were scripts like that for freebsd.

are those scripts hard to write for yourself? I hope not, because I play a lot of games and to write a new script for al of my games would be very time-consuming ;o), Or is it possible to add a rule to the firewall like ipfw add divert tcp from x{port} to y{internal adres of computer} ?????

Please help me out, give me examples!

thanx.
