The Hurd is still very much in development. A lot of these speed issues
will eventually be resolved but you should be aware that the Hurd imposes
more overhead than something like Linux. This makes the Hurd more robust
and powerful, but at a slight performance hit.

Use the server 'pfinet' for this. The way to go about it is:

settrans /servers/socket/2 /hurd/pfinet --address=x.x.x.x
--interface=eth0 --gateway=x.x.x.x --netmask=x.x.x.x

pfinet --help should work too. :)
