    Solved Jail started with broken network interface (config error) but appeared to be fine.

    Because I made a (huge) mistake in a config file I ran into a problem that took me long to solve because I missed out on obvious error messages when my jails started. I guess with the way jails work, the behavior that I encountered is just how it is, not a bug. But I do want to describe it...

    general/other Google Cloud Compute Engine Connectivity

    Hi all, I've been noting some weird networking issues with FreeBSD 13.0 on Google Cloud. After setting up the server, connectivity would be fine but a few days later on, without any configuration changes to FreeBSD or the VPC, would loose inbound connectivity for HTTP or SSH. The VM gets...

    Wifi shows up in pciconf, but not configured as wlan0

    After a few days of hacking, I'm very close to finally using FreeBSD. I think I have one (hopefully) final step left, to get wifi working. Currently, my wifi adapter shows up in pciconf, but it doesn't seem to show up as wlan0. Running net-mgmt/wifimgr gives me the error ifconfig: interface...

    ctld trying to start before networking is configured

    Hi. I've just upgraded a 12.2-RELEASE system to 13.0-RELEASE, and during one of the reboots, I noticed that ctld was failing to start. Scrolling back through the boot messages on the console, I noticed that it was only after ctld tried to start that the network interfaces were configured...

    Solved Creating Separate Virtual Interface For Jail

    Hello, I have set up an jail with ezjail while following this handbook tutorial. After setting it up, my physical interface that host uses has two IPs, one for jail one for host. For some programs listening on all IPs in host's interface this is not ideal. Can I add a virtual interface with its...

    DHCP gets IP address wrong

    I just installed FreeBSD 12.2. I'm trying to set up internet access with an Intel 8260 Dual Band AC wifi adapter. I'm using an Xfinity Technicolor XB6 router from Comcast which has an IP address of 10.0.0.1 and when using DHCP it assigns IP addresses in the form of 10.0.0.x. For some reason the...

    I've been messing around with jails and I'm able to setup a jail and have access to the net from inside of it using the "inherit" for ip4. Now I want to assign a different IP address for each jail I create but I loose access to the internet and I'm not able to install any packages in them. I'm...

    jails SSHD in a jail fails to bind to a Nebula IP from host, but only at boot

    This is my first post, so while I will do my best to stick to the forum rules and guidelines, I'm sure I'll get something wrong. All assistance in that regard is appreciated. With that out of the way, I seem to have a problem. I currently have a FreeBSD 12.2 ZFS VPS set up, and connected to my...

    Why I can't use a Load Balancer configured in Apache ?

    Hello everyone, as you can see in the title, I'm having some trouble trying to make a load balancer on one of my FreeBSD servers. I don't know why but the configuration that I'm giving to apache looks fine, because it's giving me a "syntax ok" when I restart the service, but asks me if the...

    Solved Hardware for router

    Hi! I was not sure if I should put this to networking or off topic. I am looking for a relative cheap ITX motherboard and computer case which can handle 2x8 PCI-E cards with bifurcation without cutting metal or other kind of tinkering. I'd like to have something small for my home network, but I...

    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...
