well, i'd laugh, glen, but i hurt my back twisting over to my right
[[ with my left hand]] to use the dell keybd. yes, why would any
body do anybody else a bad deed.
here is more complete version of the events of the day.
my network bud down in dallas is helping me get the dell as my
new server. my old hp kayak is from 1998 and on its death-bed.
okay: i have 7.2-R, i386. installs fine. jon horne changed the
IP that the op sys | DHCP suite chose from 10.47.0.112 to
10.47.0.230. i do not know why, but he change the ifconfig line in
/etc/rc.conf from ="DHCP" to ="inet 10.47.0.230 netmask 10.0.0.255"
or something similar. jon says that the IP can't or shouldn't be
D=Dynamic but stable. surely this is right. ---in my old config
prior to jan 2008 or dec 2007 i had every local IP tied down in a
file in /usr/local/etc/dhcpd.conf [or similar]. it worked
flawlessly. now i am using pfSense and i *think* there is a config
file in there that makes local IP's stable.
anybody know if i'm right?
anyway, after my dell was reset to 0.230 from 0.112, things began to
fail. i do not know very much about networking or dhcp; just enough
to know that if something works, that is a Good sigh!
i need to move over my /etc/namedb/* files; i need to set up mail--
dovecot[?]; and lastly, apache22. i've got the files, just don't
know how-to make the switch from my 1998 server to my 2009
thanks to all who have read this far. ideas, suggestions very
welcome. a severe wind storm tonight may take down my network any
time. sooner is better, :-)
