I have a computer that I have had Freebsd on previously. I recently
re-installed 5.1-release on it as I was going to make it a firewall.
Well, I pulled one of the nic out, and have been trying to do a
full install from ftp.
I boot using the (2) floppies. Go through the standard install
(blow away partition, create, etc). When I get to the media
source and choose FTP, then selected the default ftp.freebsd.org.
I tries, and comes back to the media selection screen. I have
tried (last night) all the USA ftp servers with the same result.
Tried a different NIC. Same result. Tried a different port on
my switch. Same result. I can see it talking as the activity lights
are blinking. I am configuring the NIC with a static internal
IP of 192.168.1.77 (my internal LAN uses 192.168.1.X). I set
the gateway IP to my gateway (192.168.1.75).
All my machines can see the internet and each other (except
this box I'm working on).
Any ideas on the culprit ?
