Cabling is fine. I also have Ubuntu installed on the same machine. It
was from Ubuntu I posted the message.
I'm going to install FreeBSD 6 (latest snapshot) this weekend. I
previously installed FreeBSD 5.4 successfully on this machine.
I'm also installing FreeBSD 6 on my server, as NetBSD currently isn't an
option due to no support for the LSI MegaRaid 150-6 card.
Could I copy a configuration file from FreeBSD over to a NetBSD install?
Or is there something in my Ubuntu (Debian) setup which would benefit?
I am not knowledgable about tcpdump/snoop, I suppose it will provide
information I can post back here?
I'll have to see if that is something on OS X.3. I have 3 Mac OS
machines on this network.
