I haven't seen that error before, but you do have a small problem with the config. You shouldn't have two cards on the same subnet. If you just want to try it out, assign the new card a 192.168.2.xxx address. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
