I have configured ifconfig_le0/pcn0="DHCP" in /etc/rc.conf. But it still has no network access. In the virtualbox, I choose the networking mode "Bridged" or "NAT", they don't work, either. I found in the virtualbox the name of this virtual network interface is eth0. But when i use ifconfig, there is no eth0 in this operating system. I don't know whether this is the reason.

The only way I can get proper access to the outside world is to allow VMWare or VBox to install the Bridgeing Adapter. In the VM Software, choose the bridging device and then choose any network device the VM offers you (in vBox I have 2 PCINET devices and 3 others, the choice doesn't matter really). When I assigned a static IP to the VM (in my case but it doesn't work (be sure yo set the default route, 'route add gateway <IP>). The only way I had it working was to let DHCP get an IP at the command line w/ 'dhclient -q <DEVICE_NAME>'. Anyway, hope that helps a little.


I will try and see whether the same method works for me. If it could not get network access. I am afraid I could not use virtual machine and might go back to run FreeBSD on real hardware. Thank you very much,
