Unhappy Cannot get new installed card to ping other machine

I have added another NIC to my machine, but I cannot get it to ping my windows box.

Everything seems to be configured correctly the new card appears as sk0 hardware device, the onboard one as sis0. The windows box has an IP of, on the linux box sis0 is at and the one that doesn't seem to work sk0 is at

When I connect up sk0 to the windows box via a cross over cable. Pings just wont get through. Is this a network routing issue? And if so how do I enter a route to (windows) from the sk0 device?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanking you in advance,

Your second NIC needs to be on another subnet. It cannot be on the same subnet as the first NIC.
After assigning an address in another subnet , you also need to enable forwarding of the IP traffic between the two NICs.

In rc.conf
Alternative is to use the appropiate sysctl to enable this. Finding the name of this sysctl is left as an exercise for the reader
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump

Did you get this working? My first thing to check if you didn't would be make sure that windows firewall is turned off.
