    Network connection goes off after turning PC off overnight

    Hi, I'm fairly new to FreeBSD and for some reason I'm having a weird experience on how my setup is behaving on my network. I have 2 other operating systems on my rig (that's not even a year old), Archlinux, Windows 10 and FreeBSD, all installed on 3 separate SSD's. FreeBSD's volume is in GPT and...

  3. BCM4360 802.11ac supported yet?

    I bought a Rosewill AC1300 (without proper research), and I have tried all the avenues of approach I can. ndisgen created a kernel module that would break my install using the supplied drivers. I also have tried bwn, bwi, if_bwn_pci, and have yet to find anything to get a workable solution...

    Jail IP configuration

    I've been diving into jails lately and I'm scratching my head. In terms of pure configuration of jail.conf I have no real questions. However in terms of IP usage and interface allocation I have a few. I have read many threads about jails and have seen 2 approaches most widely used: 1) Jail IP...

    FreeBSD router with only one Ethernet port

    I have somewhat limited understanding about networking and I was wondering, that could I use my FreeBSD server as a router with a network switch, because the machine has only one Ethernet port. I would connect the FreeBSD router to the network switch and the network switch directly to the...
  10. Public IP on bhyve guest

    I'm trying to assign a public IP to a guest managed by bhyve. My host gave me 2 public IPs to use, which I'll refer to as (to obfuscate the real IP): 111.111.111.111 (host) 222.222.222.222 (webserver vm) The first, 111.111.111.111 is assigned to the host's interface, which has internet...
  11. How to assign public IP to a bhyve virtual instance?

    Hi, I'm trying to figure out to assign a real IP address to a bhyve vm running Ubuntu. (Real IP address means a public facing IP address assigned by the provider.) I add: vm switch add public em0 Then, I should omit: ifconfig_igb0_alias0="17.28.44.219 netmask n.n.n.n" in the rc.conf...
  12. FreeBSD Switching Features

    So I've been playing with a FreeBSD virtual setup to test network functionality, and the routing is awesome, especially vlan subinterfaces. Now I'm trying to make the FreeBSD machine behave as a network switch. One way to do that is to create a bridge and add all the ports to the bridge. This...
  13. How to configure IP address in jails for a machine without network card.

    Normally, we have to put the network interface (e.g. em0 or igb0) when setting up jails. For example: jail_jailname_ip="192.168.1.100" jail_jailname_interface="igb0" If the network interface (physical card) is being sent as pass-thru via bhyve to a virtualized operating system running within...

    ASUS USB-AC51

    Hey! So this is my second thread on the FreeBSD forums, and I'm trying to get the USB-AC51 by ASUS to work in FreeBSD. In the FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE release notes, it says that "urtwn(4) has been updated to support the ASUS USB-AC51", so it's supposed to be working. I've tried putting...

    Delete network alias

    I created a bad alias when attempting to setup networking for a jail. I ran ifconfig bce0 alias 192.168.1.111 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.4.255 when I should have done this ifconfig bce0 alias 192.168.4.111 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.4.255 I've corrected the problem but...

    IPV6 working only a few seconds after boot

    I'm currently running 11.0-RELEASE-p7 in one of those cheap 1€ aruba VPS machines servers for fun. Their current control panel doesn't support ipv6 auto configuration therefore it must be configured manually. I'm able to configure the ipv6, but I lost connectivity a few seconds after boot. My...
