    separation of IP cameras

    Hello All, I would like to ask more experienced users how to conceptually approach the following task. I have a subnet 192.168.1.0/24 running a file server and backup machine in iocage jails (jails' IPs are on the same subnet). I would like to install IP cameras with zoneminder again running in...

    No network interface when installing

    I'm installing FreeBSD 12.1 in a laptop, and when the installation prompts to configure the network (IPv4/IPv6), no adapter appears. I entered another tty (Alt+F4) and run ifconfig, where only lo0 device shows up. Any idea on how to make it recognize the WiFi card?

    Not able to ping, "ping: host is down".

    Hi, I installed FreeBSD on an old computer, which has a 3com 3C900-COMBO NIC. The problem here is that it looks like it detects the NIC, and installs the driver for it, which is called "xl", but unfortunately, it doesn't look like the interface is working properly. This is because I've got a Hub...

    Solved Poor outbound link on vmx after upgrading 12.0 -> 12.1

    I have a VPS on CloudAtCost. They have a template for FreeBSD 12.0, and a VPS installed from it works great. The network performance in average 1.5Gb/s / 800Mb/s (in/out). After upgrading it to 12.1 the outbound link's speed droped significantly and becomes 0.7Mb/s ― very consistent. So...

    Managing networks on a laptop

    I'm currently on Arch Linux and I'm interested in trying with FreeBSD with KDE Plasma (and likely bspwm as an alternative session) on my laptop again after quite some time, and I'm wondering what the way to go there is for managing networks, so easily connecting to and switching between public...

    Another BCM4322 (FreeBSD 12)

    I would like to apologise in advance, if this is straight-forward, and/or answered elsewhere on the forum--I have tried for the past few hours to look hard before I dared ask any questions, and I combed through the WiFi section of the Handbook, etc. Basically, in short, I am using an EliteBook...

    Rapid Spanning Tree Emulation versus Actual Network

    I'm comparing network emulation in FreeBSD against performance of an actual in-service network. The network uses rapid spanning tree protocol to reconfigure if a link fails. Testing with the actual network shows around 20 milliseconds of down time before the route is adjusted after link...

    HTML Wifi Hotspot Accept conditions

    I work a lot on guest networks and most require me to accept their terms and conditions that are presented in a webpage. How can I accept these with a fresh install to gain access to the network?

    Slow network only when X is running

    After re-installing my desktop PC with FreeBSD, I noticed that my network is awfully slow, but only when X is running. In the console, I get my usual speed of approx 1.2MiB/s (download). This is the speed it used to run at, both with FreeBSD 11 and 12 before I re-installed. If I start X and...

    Unix and Linux - Network Subsystems

    Hi All, I'm a network engineer looking to better understand the network subsystem of FreeBSD (unix systems) and in particular how it differs from the linux kernel network subsystem. Any good links or books? I believe iproute2 (this is a package, not a subsystem, right?) is used by linux, so...
