    DHCP lost connection?


    After rebooting I can't seem to get my DHCP connection, I'm dual booting, I have fedore 5 on my master and PC-BSD on the slave, All was gonig great until I rebooted to PC-BSD,
    then after booting in I can't seem to get connected to the web. I went to network configuration and my eth0 is enabled and it has dhcp, yet I can't get on the web, tried both web browsers and PC-BSD download, no dice, This FreeBSD is not to user friendly.
    Need some help to get in solid. Thanks, fvs

    PS No problem on master (fc5), that's where I posting from.

    I haven't use PC-BSD yet but it derived from FreeBSD so it should be the same.
    To use DHCP, you have to have this in /etc/rc.conf to start the dhcp client and configure your device. The device that is eth0 under Linux will be someting else under FreeBSD--maybe ed0 or vr0 or sis0 or something else. So replace "ed0" in the second line with your actual device name. See 'man rc.conf' for more information.
    Code:
    background_dhclient="YES"
    ifconfig_ed0="DHCP"
    If you have any special setup, you may need to also edit /etc/dhclient.conf.

    This is beyond my limited FreeBSD experience, but I would expect you to need these in /etc/rc.conf
    Code:
    lpd_enable="YES"
    usbd_enable="YES"
    And I think you need an entry in /etc/usbd.conf.
    You might use the usbdevs command to get information about devices connected to USB.
