A while back I wrote in about this problem, but
then got swamped with life and had to quit
working on it. Now I have some time, and I have
recently had to rebuild all of the operating
systems on my computer - Win2k Pro, Linux
Mandrake 9.1 and FreeBSD 4.7.
Here's the problem. I have installed FreeBSD 4.7
on my computer and the installation goes fine. I
have dial up access, and that configures fine
also. Connection goes through. But once the
connection is up - nothing. I have connectivity
through Win2k and Linux Mandrake 9.1.
I have tried dialing out as root through the
command line, and I have tried dialing out as an
unprivelaged user under KPPP. Dialing works,
connection gets established, but all attempts to
ping fail with absolutely nothing happening at
all - no dropped packets reported, nothing. Ping
just sits there. Konqueror spins it's gears
forever without response.
I have just installed FreeBSD, and I have not
configured a firewall or anything like that.
Security setting is default medium. No services
have been changed. No post install
This problem also pops up if I try to install 5.0
I am lost at this point... what should I try?
Thanks for the assistance. I'd really like to
get myself moved over from Linux to FreeBSD as
much as possible.
