1) run tcpdump on the on both the external interface and the
internal interface to see whats going on.

2) check that can at least get out to the internet

3) check the firewall rules, initially, make them unrestrictive,
temporarily place a `${fwcmd} add pass all from any to any' somewhere
soon after the nat divert rule, so that nat continues to work. When you
get it working with the `pass all' firewall, reinstate your rules, but
remember to include a pass rule for external setup on ports
8888 and 3389.

5) keep an eye on which fw rules are causing you grief with `ipfw show',
watch the counters and the security logfile.
