Let me preface this mail by saying: I'm an idiot. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, you don't have to say it! I have a piece of networking equipment that does not have a "factory defaults" button on it. it has to be RMA'd and returned to the manufacturer if you can't remember login credentials (forgot username,pass/IP, etc) I was assigning the unit an IP address of 172.20.1.x but I typod it. 127.20.1.x and as you can guess, I can't connect to the unit from any other device now. 127.x is loopback. I have tried assigning a 127.20.1.x address to an ethernet interface in a FreeBSD box, and removinging the 127.0.0.1/8 on localhost. I've also gone into the routing table, and removed all traces of routes for 127.x and finally, *tried* creating a route for 127.20.1.x to go out the ethernet interface (link #2) The problem with everything above is: no matter what ip/subnet combination I use, I get a message (when adding the route) that the network is unreachable. Then, when I try to ping the device from the fbsd box, I get "ping: sendto: Can't assign requested address" My question is: Is it possible in any way, to change the 127 routing to pass out my ethernet card long enough to re-ip this device? I haven't yet come up with a decent solution. Thanks for any thoughts, Jeff _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
