I am having a bit of an issue with KWF acting as a gateway.

I have a machine with two nics, One is a wireless nic, which I am trying to setup to allow my laptop wireless access, and the other nic goes to a hub, which also has connected to it, the adsl router and a mail server.

For this purpose, lets say the ethernet nic is, with the adsl router (does its own nat) on 1.1 and a mail server on 1.2

the wireless nic is and wireless client on 2.2

Now, I have the following rules configured...

1: name=(Laptop NAT) src=(list:"Laptop") dst=(any) service=(any) snat=( dnat=(any) action=(permit,logpkt,logconn), time_range=(always) inspector=(default)
2: name=(Allow Access to This PC) src=(list:"Laptop" list:"Local Network") dst=(Firewall) service=(any) snat=(any) dnat=(any) action=(permit), time_range=(always) inspector=(default)
3: name=(Firewall Anywhere) src=(Firewall) dst=(any) service=(any) snat=(auto) dnat=(any) action=(Permit), time_range=(always) inspector=(default)
4: default: action=(drop)

I can browse web pages without any problems, I can access my email ok (I use two IMAP email servers, one on my network and one on the internet).

The main issue is that I cannot send email, I continually get SMTP errors when sending messages.

Also I would like to know what is required to get msn messenger working on the laptop - it works fine on the gateway pc, but wont connect on the laptop.

All I would like to do is have the laptop appear to be connected to the hub and use 1.1 as its gateway instead of the pc as its gateway and natting twice (KWF nat and ADSL router nat) - is this possible with KWF, or should i just use an access point instead.

Your problem may be caused by packet loss and lowering the MTU may fix the problem.
