/sbin/ifconfig output? Also, do you happen to have a firewall in your
FreeBSD OS setup :)?

1. It will take me a while to get the ifconfig output. Will post it in
a few hours may be.
2. I am FreeBSD newbie. I am not sure how to check if a firewall is
running. I doubt if there is ... I don't remember installing one. Can
please you tell me how to look?



If you didn't compile it into the kernel, there should be a directive in /etc/rc.conf with the term "firewall" or "pf" for example if you have one running.
