'skay, I should be paying more attention.

Not a problem. If the network is running at 10, then if the nic is set
to auto-negotiate then it's *supposed* to return 10baseT.

But I do have to ask again if there is a firewall running on the problem
box itself. My reasons for asking again, is the fact that nothing
hitting the hub, as you say, does indeed indicate that nothing leaves
the box. In cases like this, its usually because data was not *allowed*
to leave the box.

I'd ask you again to check his for sure. Just so as to eliminate this,
just run ipfw show on the box, please.

Also check in /etc/rc.conf, as well in the kernel for IPFIREWALL
