I suspect that what Aaron meant was that there is a local filtering problem on the 4.6 machine. When you try to ping another device from the 4.6 box, you get 'permission denied' (typical of local blocking via ipfw). Are you running ipfw on the 4.6 machine? As root, issue the command 'ipfw show' and you will know for sure. > need to 4.6 box to show a connection to the network. I'll change out > the nic tomorrow and see if that makes any differance. I doubt that the nic is bad. If it were, FreeBSD probably wouldn't see it, and wouldn't assign an IP address to a non-existent interface, and any pings would likely result in a 'no route to destination' type of error. Try to ping the 4.6 host from another host on the network, then check the arp table of the 'pinger'. If you don't see the IP <-> MAC entry in the arp table, then that is another problem. -- Mike perl -e 'print unpack("u","88V]N=&%C=\"!I;F9O(&EN(&AE861E<G,*");'
