1. No firewall running. 2. Here is the output: pcn0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet6 fe80::260:b0ff:fe87:42ca%pcn0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1 inet 10.0.0.101 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 10.0.0.255 ether 00:60:b0:87:42:ca media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>) status: active plip0: flags=108810<POINTOPOINT,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST,NEEDSGIANT> mtu 1500 lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 16384 inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128 inet6 fe80::1%lo0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x3 inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000 What I have noticed is that when I ping from the other machine (FC2) then at least the two lights corresponding to these two machines blink. When I ping from my FreeBSD to the FC2 box, then the switch lights do not blink. This leads me to suspect that the packets from the BSD host are never making it to the network cable - is my network card supported I wonder. What I have seen is that this same network card works when I boot to RHEL4.3 which is the other OS on this box and it does ping alright between the two boxes. On FreeBSD, this NIC is detected as AMD 79c79x - I could do ifconfig to set the IP and netmask - no errors were reported. However it does not look like I am at all getting on the network with this.
