Does the docs mention running a routing protocol such as routed? 

You should enable it with router_enable="YES" in your /etc/rc.conf file.

To run it while the box is up type "routed -q".

This should sort the problem of packets not being routed.

Ian.

 Hi all,

 I have been attempting to get a transparent bridge running with my
FreeBSD 4.4 setup. I have configured the kernel with all bridging and
firewalling options. I have run all of the necessary "sysctl" commands.
The problem is that there are almost NO packets being send from the
wireless interface. When I look at the TCPDUMP on the FreeBSD box, I see
may ARP requests such as the who-has and so on. It does not look like
these packets are making it through. I have set the firewall to pass all
packets as well. Are there some secret settings that are not found in
this document?:

 Also, I have the both cards configured correctly (so I believe) as they
are in promiscous mode and do respond to ping requests with IP is
enabled on them - I currently have IP only in the inside, hard-wired
ethernet card.

 Any ideas?

 Thank You All

 George
