Because forwarding is turned off (either in your kernel is compiled
without the GATEWAY option, or forwarding is turned of during
I guess it will respond:
net.inet.ip.forwarding = 0

sysctl -w net.inet.ip.forwarding=1
You have to this every time you reboot (this can go into /etc/netstart)
unless you compile your kernel with the GATEWAY option set.
