connection problems

Hi again,

I've noticed since ppp reconnected to the internet when I got disconnect
I have two sets of ips in ifconfig,
Heres a paste from ifconfig:

tun0: flags=3D8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        inet6 fe80::240:95ff:fe33:4a59%tun0 --> :: prefixlen 64 scopeid
        inet --> netmask 0xffffff00
        inet --> netmask 0xffffff00
        Opened by PID 9130

Now the line 'inet --> netmask
0xffffff00' I think
Is my new ip, I'm pretty sure about this, now heres the problem:

The windows machine behind the network can connect and view some
websites, and can reach pretty much any IRC network, but
When I try to connect to A IRC server in BitchX from the FreeBSD machine
(the gateway) it doesn=92t seem to connect, same with pinging, I cannot
ping a thing apart from my windows machine and localhost. The only idea
I have is it=92s the two sets of ips above, and one has to be ridden of =
I can make a connection from the FreeBSD machine. Any ideas on how I can
sort this out ?

Any help will be great!
