Re: iscsi initiator troubles [SOLVED]

Thanks for the tip- the 20111006 version of iscsi-initiator works great... I'm 
using it for backing storage for xen against istgt on another nebsd machine. 
One weird thing- when just playing with the initiator, after a 'disklabel -I -e 
vnd0' I got a spontaneous system reset right at the "write" moment coming out 
of vi... Have not upgraded istgt on the target system yet; will try that

Cool, perhaps it's time to try jumbo frames myself as those are exactly 
the cards I use.

Yes, please try the version in pkgsrc HEAD (not in 2011Q3).
