I'm having a problem with a dual-homed host running 7.0-RELEASE with
regards to traffic on one of the interfaces that I'm hoping someone
knows something about.

The goal of this box is to run Nessus on bge0 only (which is plugged
into a trunk port on a switch), keeping fxp0 free as the admin
interface and for serving web pages on my LAN.

Here's ifconfig:

bge0: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        ether 00:19:b9:22:a8:22
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
        status: active
fxp0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        ether 00:02:b3:bb:59:17
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        inet netmask 0xffffffff broadcast
        inet netmask 0xffffffff broadcast
        media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
        status: active

/etc/rc.conf section:

# Created: Mon Jun  9 09:32:52 2008
ifconfig_fxp0="inet  netmask"
ifconfig_fxp0_alias0="inet netmask"
ifconfig_fxp0_alias1="inet netmask"
ifconfig_bge0="inet netmask"

Try using ifconfig_bge0="up" in /etc/rc.conf instead of assigning bogus (probably) address.

I'm not sure what other changes need to be made or where, but when I
assign an IP/netmask to bge0, bring up the interface, and try to ping
the gateway (or anything else), I get 100% packet loss.  I've even
tried to assign a new default route, but I get an error stating
there's already a default route.

I know I'm completely missing something here, but I just can't figure
out *what*.

Any help would be most appreciated.
