OK pen and paper come to the rescue, here is the result of netstat -n on
my misconfigured, 5.5 stable, upgraded system that can not seem to ping
the gateway let alone do a cvsup:
Active UNIX domain sockets
Address Type Recv-Q Send-Q Inode Conn Refs NextRef Addr
c20761a4 Stream 0 0 c207a000 0
0 0 /var/run/devd.pipe
I tried trying ifup sis0 but I discovered ifup is no longer around.
