1) Tech-install is for discussing development of the installation
system, not for asking for help -- you probably want netbsd-help or
2) You aren't really explaining the problem -- you can only ping your
own IP addresses? (Your problem statement is ambiguous and you
really aren't giving enough information. What sort of ethernet
devices? Which NetBSD port? How are you configuring them?). Without
any routing daemons running, you should still be able to ping
anything on the same subnet as one of your ethernet devices. You
a) Make sure that the ethernet devices are properly attached
to their respective networks. Make sure ifconfig indicates
everything is okay, and check that the port lights on your
ethernet hubs indicate the devices are up and running, etc.
b) try sniffing on the networks with tcpdump -n -i to make
sure that you can actually hear other traffic on the
networks. If you can't, something is wrong at a very low level.
c) Check the routing table with netstat -nr to see that you in
fact have routes for those nets installed by ifconfig
If you still have trouble, please take it to an appropriate mailing
list, not tech-install.
