Hi..

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.

#ifconfig_rl0="DHCP"

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 217.33.114.53 on firewall. I am able to ping this IP from outside
machine (ping 217.33.114.53). Since apache server is running on the server
you should be getting this by clicking this link http://217.33.114.53 (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 enter it.

Thanks in advance.
