kris, thanks for your reply. whats the best way to tell if i have mis-negotiated? is just 'ifconfig' sufficient? i was wondering about this earlier, and reboots of the hosts as well as the switches yielded no different results. also, i did a few other tests as well. i can scp to/from the 7.0b3 and 6.2p8 from/to each other as well as other hosts on the network at what i would call normal speeds (6-10 megabytes/sec). also, i can 'cp -vpnRP' directory trees from/to the same with normal results. only installing kernel from the 7.0 to the 6.2 stalls out. -- Jonathan Horne http://dfwlpiki.dfwlp.org [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
