I don't know this option (maybe in rc.conf?).

Ping an IP-address on the NetBSD machine outside the network works
(NetBSD dialup the ISP).

I'm not familiar with tcpdump. I tryed traceroute 188.8.131.52.
-> traceroute 184.108.40.206(220.127.116.11),max 30 hops ...

It seams there is a problem with the NetBSd machine. I looked in man
traceroute and I found that it might be a bug in the 4. BSD
network code - but I didn't understand it well. I hope it is not
relevant for my stuff.
>You shuld try to explain in more detail what you already tried.
I try to setup the NetBSD machine as a dialup router in my network. If
I start a Web-browser, ftp-program or simple a ping on the other
computers (with Linux , NT or FreeBSD) - the request is send to the
NetBSD machine and this one establishes a connection to the ISP via
modem (and thus to the internet).
