Well, sound like DNS prblems. What is the content of your /etc/resolv.conf? then, when there is an entry like: nameserver 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1 being the IP of the MAC), then check if the DNS on your MAC is working by: #### nslookup - 192.168.1.1 set q=any freebsd.org #### Well, then your MAC should resolve some IP and mx data, when not, the DNS on your MAC is misfunctional. You also can specify DNS in the /etc/resolv.conf that are on the outside, or you could run named as caching resolver. Therefore, populate /etc/hosts with the IP/name of FreeBSD box, run /etc/named/make-localhost and then start named. In /etc/resolv.conf put a : nameserver 127.0.0.1 as first nameserver statement, and FreeBSD will directly resolve...
