Hello everyone,

After compiling a new kernel, everything works great except for ping. 
If I login as any user set up on the system, I cannot ping.  I get the

ping: socket: Permission denied

If I su to root and ping, it works fine.

Can someone help me?  I have no idea where to begin looking.


PS, what man pages can I look at to get info on the IP filtering and NAT
features of netbsd 1.2?
