I've been booting back and forth between os's and don't have the mail
to respond to that someone recomended that I run --
"sysctl -a|grep forward"  I did so and it showed:
net.inet.ip.forwarding = 1                       
net.inet6.ip6.forwarding = 0

I set net.inet6.ip6.forwarding  to "1"

Still I can't reach the web from my linux box.  Any other thoughts?
