Yes, well put. That clarified I was in fact consuming resources in a
less than optimal way :-)

Ok, I tried that but my system is to far gone. Close to 100 environment
vars are missing and if I jam them all into rc.conf it will be a mess,
especially since I would be guessing at the appropriate values for the
My next step is to start from scratch (as Albi suggested.)
Unfortuntely, even with ipfw set to open, I am still getting no route to
host when I try and ping my gateway.
It was always pingable in the past, and I've checked the cable into my
new-ish switch and all seems fine, with green lights.
The result of a route -n is in another virtual terminal and I can't copy

i.e. no routes are in the routing table at all. Further suggestions
welcome, and thanks for your help so far.
