Hi FreeBSD folks,
I'm a UNIX user for some time but now I'm trying to install my first FreeBSD system
over the internet. I got along with the HW and pre-installation issues easily, the disk space
is allocated, I know what to install. But I can't connect for download. I'd like to ask for
On this handbook page
I arrive at figure Figure 2-27. Set Network Configuration for ed0. See page
I don't know what to put in "host", "domain", "IPv4 gateway" and "domain server".
My ISP is German Telekom.
I'm using a CompuShack gateway/4-port switch
Connecting to my 3-COMs RJ45 jack
My computer is 192.168.0.4
The local gateway is 192.168.0.1
The subnet mask is 255.255.255.0
The gateway's internet address changes as it is assigned when connecting.
Who's host name has to be used ?
I'm logging into Telekom as xxxxxxxxxxx at t-online.de . Is "t-online.de" the required domain ?
The installation probes IP numbers like 18.104.22.168 for the name server. Is that what's needed ?
I would very much appreciate your help. I also won't need more help :-)
