please make a rough ascii sketch of your network and post the output to the following :-
netstat -rn ifconfig -a
in your rc.conf
Ok, I edited rc.conf and rebooted; when trying to ping myself by ip or as localhost got "Permission denied" so I then did "ipfw disable firewall" and was able to do those two pings. And when trying to then ping some other nodes again got "No route to host".
my local area network:
192.168.0.1 (win-xp) 192.168.0.150 (win-95) 192.168.7.7 (freebsd-4.8/mini) 192.168.0.3 (win-98) 192.168.0.160 (win-95)
these five boxes each have a nic and all connect to a switch.

Hey Luke, wanna hear something funny? I didn't want to take 20 minutes to write all this so I spent an hour and a half instead trying to mount a floppy and then copy the output from these commands onto it so I could then copy & paste the verbiage onto my email from a windows box. Didn't get it working though. 8^}
