Re: Problems with routing on OpenBSD firewall
First of all have you enabled the packet forwarding ?
if you did that then I don't know if you placed any route entry to the
hop of your network to route the packets for the network that is located
behind the firewall in the firewall.
for example if you have a central hop with ip 192.168.0.1 and your first
subnet is 192.168.0.0/24 and the network behind the firewall is the
192.168.1.0/24 and your firewalls "front" nic has 192.168.0.3 ip addres
you have to add in the hop a static route that routes packets having
destination the network 192.168.1.0/24 must been forwarded to
192.168.0.3 which knows better how to manage theese packets.
I'll be glad to help you more if you provide any network configuration
sample and what you have done in your firewall
