I don't think that StarOS will let you put addresses from the same subnet on all interfaces. If you try this AND not notice, it will add the address but disable it (this is shown by the easy to miss * by it). This will result in the same thing though and that is not able to get into the unit.

I agree with you, Marlon on the documentation/ease-of-use. I gave up using Tranzeos for StarOS because of its flexibility and powerful boards and the atheros driver available creating an environment with extremely low latency. Tranzeos were/are super-easy. With StarOS, I've gotten over alot of
