Basic networking fail.
I usually use dhcp to connect OpenBSD to the internet and haven't had to concern myself with much more than hostname.if at least for a long time anyway.
ATM, I have a "router box" that I wish to use as a gateway to the internet for my desktop.
This is the topology:
As a minimum, I am able to plug my Internet (from my modem) into any of these adapters and get the web. A simple "dhcp" on a line in the relevant hostname.if file sees to that. :]
The next simple step in connectivity is to get the route from vr1 to fxp0 working, at least at the IP address level.
Here are my hostname.if files:
inet 192.168.255.250 255.255.255.0
inet 192.168.255.0 255.255.255.0
My experience on that other O.S. tells me this is enough to do a ping test.
Unfortunately in this case it doesn't work.
I have tried with a known good cable. I can see the adapter lights at both ends flashing @ about the speed of the default ping packets.
Please let me know what to do.
As to be expected with OpenBSD it will be my fault.
Still I need to take precautions.
I have mercenaries waiting on the tarmac. The flight plan is for Alberta.
These guys are costing me a fortune and are starting to get antsy.
