We have just moved offices and our freebsd machine has started complaining in
the following terms
Oct 29 17:14:39 int kernel: arplookup ww.xx.yy.zz failed: host is not on local
We have an external router connected as a dhcp server at 192.168.0.2 which
apparently has external address ww.xx.yy.zz. I am using a fixed ip address ie
I have this in my rc.conf
ifconfig_em0="inet 192.168.0.6 netmask 255.255.255.0"
and have dns mapping int.myoffice.com --> ww.xx.yy.zz, but our ISP will not make
the reverse mapping. I assume that we're trying to reverse lookup something and
the lack of reverse dns is causing this issue.
What can I add to my rc.conf to stop this arplookup problem?
