I am trying to set up a Free BSD server with an SMC
Elite ethernet card to talk to a W95 box with another
SMC Elite card on a local
network at home. I used the hardware jumpers to set
the SMC card in the bsd box to 0x300,10,cc000 and during bootup used
UserConfig to set these parameters for ed1. The
system recognizes the card is there. W95 recognized
the card and loaded the appropriate drivers using the
software config setting on the SMC card.
I ifconfiged the ed1 interface:
ifconfig ed1 inet 10.0.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0.
On w95 I set the IP address to 10.0.0.3 and set
the netmask to 255.255.255.0. So far so good.
I can see packets being
transmitted (using netstat -I ) from either box
but neither box will answer a PING. The send
and receive lights on the SMC cards light up
when a ping is sent on either end. The BSD box
has the correct ethernet address for the w95 box
so ARP seems to be working but still NO PING.
Any ideas or advice would be welcome!
