I wiish to retire a rather aging Linux box which has been providing
(amongst other things) access to a Novell file server.
The new box has has FreeBSD 4.8 installed and I have recompiled
the kernel with:
And appended to rc.conf
rl0 is also configured for an inet address and ifconfog reports
rl0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 184.108.40.206 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 220.127.116.11
inet6 fe80::250:fcff:fea8:3e08%rl0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
The problem is that I have not been able to get any of the utilities to find
central:202> ipxping PHILHEND
ipxping: could not find server PHILHEND
: syserr = Network is down
central:203> ncplist s
Can't find any file server
Am I doing something stupid?
Am I overlooking something?
Can anyone please help or suggest how I might proceed?
