Well I tried all of that and it didn't seem to help me out. I am stuck using
the gateway to the internet as xxx.xxx.xxx.254 and I can't change this. I
have only been trying to get out right now, which shouldn't involve our ISP
doing any routing work. I subneted our class C network using a netmask of and put the gateway address as xxx.xxx.xxx.1 and the machine
inside the firewall as xxx.xxx.xxx.2, the firewall machine can still see the
outside and inside world and the inside machine can still see both IP
addresses of the firewall machine. Any other thoughts?
