Isn't the netmask supposed to be 4 bytes (ie 0xffff0000)?

Subject: Static IP issue.
I have installed and configured freeBSD without much of a hassle. After
installation I issued a static IP address on the system. I added the
follwing line in "rc.conf"
ifconfig_rl0="inet 172.16.1.53 netmask 0xffff00"
and commented the line below.
I am able to ping the ip address internally. But, I can't get to the
system from outside the firewall (Which is a seperate machine). This ip
address is mapped to 22.214.171.124 on firewall. I am able to ping this
IP from outside machine (ping 126.96.36.199). Since apache server is
running on the server you should be getting this by clicking this link
http://188.8.131.52 (Port 80 is opened in the firewall). But, this
doesn't seems to be working. Is there anything more I have to set-up. Do
I need to specify our dns server IP anywhere. if yes, where should I
Thanks in advance.
