Nope: C:\>ping localhost Pinging SCOTT [127.0.0.1] with 32 bytes of data: Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128 Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128 Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=128 Of course, now that I think about it, plugging another workstation in at home and seeing if I can VNC to the FreeBSD system on the local LAN would be rather enlightening. Why haven't I done this already? Duh. Will have to try it later... Incidentally, I'm not the first to have this problem: http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=20030129114855.D5796-100000_geri.cc.fe r.hr%40ns.sol.net&oe=UTF-8&output=gplain I tried emailing him but haven't heard back. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
