Please disregard my suggestion -- it appears that you have a three-interface 
setup and it also appears that you tried to follow the three-interface guide. 

Using the hosts file was not the correct approach -- you should have set up 
your zones using the interfaces file (which you haven't forwarded)

Try setting up the interfaces file as described in the three-interface guide 
and see if it doesn't work better for you.
