    Solved Multiple connections to same subnet for different functions

    I am trying out an idea I had for my FreeBSD-12.2-based router, which has six GbE ports (em0 to em5), to tweak how things work on the network. For the last year or two, I had things setup the traditional way where em0 was the WAN and em1 was the LAN, and a firewall governed what moved between...

    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...

    Error Behind Keyboard causing No Route to Host when pinging WAN/Internet

    Hi, I've had FreeBSD (currently 12) running on an older AMD server for several years now. A few weeks back my Wifi router (and central router) died so I replaced it. The new router defaulted IP Addresses to 192.168.50.x, whereas I was running 192.168.1.x previously (both have cidr /24). Because...

    Jail IPv6 only works after base initiates connection

    Hi all, When I start the jail, I get this message on my console. nd6_dad_timer: cancel DAD on epair1b because of ND6_IFF_IFDISABLED. Then the jail cannot use IPv6 until the base initiates connection to it (ie, the base pings the jail first). Otherwise, networking over IPv6 does not work Any...
