natd -redirect_address



Hello all,
 
I am probably missing something really stupid but here it goes.  I've read the man pages, the handbook and even googled the problem to no avail.
 
I am trying to set up natd to redirect public ips to my private addresses.
 
This is what I have set up in rc.conf
 
defaultrouter="24.97.250.201"
gateway_enable="YES"
hostname="gir.visionpayments.net"
ifconfig_rl0="inet 192.168.0.13  netmask 255.255.255.0"
ifconfig_xl0="inet 24.97.250.202 netmask 255.255.255.248"
linux_enable="YES"
sshd_enable="YES"
usbd_enable="YES"
firewall_enabled="YES"
firewall_type="OPEN"
natd_enabled="YES"
natd_interface="xl0"
natd_flags="-f /etc/natd.conf"

This is what I have in natd.conf
 
redirect_address 192.168.0.10 24.97.250.203

>From what I read in the man pages and handbook this should be all I need, however, I cannot even ping 24.97.250.203.  So I typed in 
 
-bash-2.05b$ natd -redirect_address 192.168.0.10 24.97.250.203
 
and got
 
natd: aliasing address not given
 
So I added 
 
ifconfig_xl0_alias0 "inet 24.97.250.203"
 
to rc.conf and now I am able to ping that public addy but it is doesn't seem to be redirecting me to 192.168.0.10.  So I typed in 
-bash-2.05b$ natd -redirect_address 192.168.0.10 24.97.250.203
again to see what was happens and got 
natd: aliasing address not given
again.  am I just being a dumb n00b? wtf am I doing wrong?
