FreeBSD Router Problem

Hi Guys,

Here's a weird one... I set up FreeBSD 5.2 to act as a router. I used
the pf.conf script shown at:

Everything works just fine. Traffic is appropriately load balanced and
things work as expected.

Strangely after a few hours something just stops routing traffic. I can't
ping the remote gateways either. Both external interfaces still show the
correct IP addresses. Rebooting the BSD box solves the problem. Nothing
else gets rebooted.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
