    Two NICs, Three networks?

    FreeBSD 6.2

    ifconfig_bce0="inet  netmask"
    ifconfig_bce1="inet  netmask"
    and I am getting warnings that traffic from bce0 is coming back through bce1:

    kernel: arp: is on bce0 but got reply from 00:21:70:10:4c:70 on bce1

    How can I modify my configuration (routing?) to prevent this error? Also, I need to talk on a 172.168.1 network (same physical cable). How can I configure that?

    This Dell server sports VPN aware NICs. Can I take advantage of that?

    Uuuh, BTW, 172.168.1 is AOL address space. So I think I have to point to my local gateway in order to avoid routing out to the public network. All of this is class c.

    You can bind the second IP like this:
    ifconfig_bce1_alias0="inet 172.xxx.x.x netmask"

    Note the netmask

    As for the other issue, can you please post the output of ifconfig and netstat -ar here.
