anyone out there had any success using the filtering bridge feature? I am not very familiar with
FreeBSD. But I have gathered that there is a file called sysctl.conf where one can pass options to
the kernel and where one may specify which interfaces should be bridged. Does this need to happen
somehow? I have gone as far as intstalling FreeBSD 4.10 on a desktop machine and connecting the CF
from the WRAP board as the secondary master to see if I could locate a sysctl.conf file. I could
not. I could find a "boot" directory, a "conf" directory, mfsroot.gz and kernel.gz . Maybe I am not
mounting the right partition. I still have not looked in the kernel.gz file yet either. Am I looking
in the wrong direction? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

You must have a 3rd NIC.  You can't bridge the WAN and LAN.
