Hello: I'm having problems getting a FreeBSD machine and a Linksys WRT54G talking with each other.
Interfaces: dc0 - "public" to outside Internet dc1 - internal 192.168.0.1/24, connects to a hub dc2 - internal 192.168.1.100/24, connects to a switched LAN port on the router dc3 - currently unused OS: FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE as of 10 December 2003 firewall: ipfw2 Running natd between dc0 & dc1 (& that works fine) dc0 gets its IP address, etc., via DHCP/dhclient. dc1 is configured statically & machines connected on that subnet work fine. dc2 should get its ip address, etc. from a Linksys WRT54G, but won't; syslog says "address in use," so I configured it "manually" with ifconfig, to 192.168.1.100/24. Problems/questions: dc2 has a Linksys WRT54G on it, & thus far, that box refuses to talk (not even icmp) with the fbsd machine, even if I set its ip-address & that of dc2 manually. (The Linksys defaults to running a dhcp server & its factory-supplied ip-address is 192.168.1.1 & it "tries" to setup the first interface talking to it to be 192.168.1.100). The router works fine when connecting another machine (running Windows 2000) to it. As examples: $ ping -c3 192.168.0.2 ## this is a Windows2000 box on the dc1 network PING 192.168.0.2 (192.168.0.2): 56 data bytes 64 bytes from 192.168.0.2: icmp_seq=0 ttl=128 time=0.391 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.0.2: icmp_seq=1 ttl=128 time=0.177 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.0.2: icmp_seq=2 ttl=128 time=0.232 ms --- 192.168.0.2 ping statistics --- 3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 0.177/0.267/0.391/0.091 ms localhost# tcpdump -lni dc1 ## tcpdump while running the above ping tcpdump: listening on dc1 10:15:39.882162 arp who-has 192.168.0.2 tell 192.168.0.1 10:15:39.882305 arp reply 192.168.0.2 is-at 0:90:27:84:42:f 10:15:39.882318 192.168.0.1 > 192.168.0.2: icmp: echo request 10:15:39.882492 192.168.0.2 > 192.168.0.1: icmp: echo reply 10:15:40.883394 192.168.0.1 > 192.168.0.2: icmp: echo request 10:15:40.883511 192.168.0.2 > 192.168.0.1: icmp: echo reply 10:15:41.893417 192.168.0.1 > 192.168.0.2: icmp: echo request 10:15:41.893584 192.168.0.2 > 192.168.0.1: icmp: echo reply $ ping -c3 192.168.1.1 ## ip address of the router on dc2 PING 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1): 56 data bytes --- 192.168.1.1 ping statistics --- 3 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss localhost# tcpdump -lni dc2 ## tcpdump while running the above ping tcpdump: listening on dc2 10:17:18.123385 arp who-has 192.168.1.1 tell 192.168.1.100 10:17:19.124588 arp who-has 192.168.1.1 tell 192.168.1.100 10:17:20.134583 arp who-has 192.168.1.1 tell 192.168.1.100 Any ideas on getting this thing to work? It seems to work fine when connected to a Windows2000 machine. Yes, I've tried other interfaces & cables, etc, so I'm confident the hardware is fine. :) Idea(s) on further troubleshooting/fixing this? FAQs/documentation pointers are quite welcome. :) Thanks, -kc _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
