Topic: Help with IP forwarding public IP's


I am moving Co-Location facilities and I am looking to forward the IP's of the old location to the new location during the time that the DNS entries for the servers are replicating across the net.

I have created a binat rule in pf.conf that looks like this.....

binat log on dc0 from 209.x.x.x to any -> 24.x.x.x

where 24.x.x.x is the address I am accepting requests on and I am forwardign them to 209.x.x.x

ping request are being forwarded but not web traffic any ideas?

p.s. I have about 40 IP's I need to forward to creating aliases for each one on dc0 in the form......

ifconfig dc0 24.x.x.x netmask alias

should work shouldnt it??

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure it's possible to do that with pf... I might be wrong though.

However, here are two other approaches to make the changeover happen more smoothly:
- before doing the changeover, lower the DNS expiry time to a couple of minutes, so that other DNS servers will not cache your IPs for very long
- On the old host, set up a reverse HTTP proxy that proxies your new host.

Can I not accomplish this with relayd??  Surely this must be something that
