I‘ve FreeBSD 7.x server with 3 jails are configured to run a mail, web and MySQL services. My FreeBSD box has two network interfaces. First, interface is connected to LAN and other is directly connected to the Internet via public IP. My DNS servers are hosted on private network (LAN). FreeBSD 7.x jail only support one interface and one IP address. How do I configure jail (FreeBSD vps) to access my DNS servers hosted inside my LAN using PF firewall?
