Sysinstall FTP from LAN - not working

I am trying to install 5.2.1 from an iMac running OSX with an FTP server. When I set up the FTP address I use the iMac's IP and enter the FreeBSD folder location. The iMac has a password and user so these are entered in the options menu. The user, password, and IP/folder are identical to that used on my FTP client under Win98 that connects without issue. The box I am installing FreeBSD on is also a Win98 box. When running Win98 on this box I have no problems connecting to the FTP server on the iMac.
The error message that I get is "no route to host" and then it asks if I would like to reconfigure.
I can't connect in sysinstall with the freebsd servers either (directly or in passive mode). Again outside of the sysinstall in Win98 on the same machine, no problem.
I have connected to the same location to load Suse Linux on another computer in the LAN.
I set up the network information automatically with the DHCP selection so that all the information regarding my LAN comes from the router. I know that I have communication between the installer and the router since all the system info comes across okay.
I cannot get a ping response, when tried from a Win98 box on the LAN, for the network address associated with the computer's NIC that I am trying to install FreeBSD on when sysinstall runs.
Any thoughts on proper configuration?
