Are you missing a quote on the ip address line? What does ifconfig output?

I'm running FreeBSD 7.1 with the latest patches. So far my /etc/rc.conf file has the following lines: defaultrouter="192.168.0.1" # I would like to leave this blank, but I put something here anyways. hostname="speedy.i" ifconfig_fxp0="inet 192.168.0.254 network 255.255.255.0" ifconfig_fxp0="up" My /etc/hosts includes this line: 192.168.0.254 speedy.i speedy Now when I am logged in to this machine and I "ping 192.168.0.254", I get: ping: sendto: No route to host I'm just trying to set up a LAN between a few computers, and actually, I don't know what to put in the "defaultrouter" field in /etc/rc.conf. I've tried leaving it blank, but that didn't help. By the way I will probably be having more questions about configuring a home router, so please bear with me. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org" <font size="1"> <div style='border:none;border-bottom:double windowtext 2.25pt;padding:0in 0in 1.0pt 0in'> </div> "This email is intended to be reviewed by only the intended recipient and may contain information that is privileged and/or confidential.
