Subject:   Can't get 2nd NIC working
Message-ID:  <000101be23ae$3ca1a220$>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I'm trying to build a firewall and have run into a problem MUCH earlier than
I had anticipated!  I don't know how to get the system to recognize my 2nd
Some of the details are:

1. I have two Intel Etherexpress 10/100 NIC's.
2. I have rebuilt the kernel with the following specs:
	device fxp0
	device fxp1
3. I have edited /etc/rc.conf to:
	network_interfaces="fxp0 fxp1 lo1"
	ifconfig_fxp0="inet [external ip here] netmask"
	ifconfig_fxp1="inet [internal ip here] netmask"

But dmesg reports finding only fxp0.  Am I missing something obvious? I have
a number of successfull workstation installs under my belt (including X),
but this is the first dual-homed system I've played with. Any help would be
much appreciated,
