Hi, I am new to the Linux environment.=A0 I am trying to build a virtual Fr=
eebsd server to run another virtual device (a Juniper router).=A0 I have fo=
und that after building the base operating system that I cannot remotely ac=
cess the virtual Freebsd server.=A0 I have tried using both Qemu and VMware=
 with the same result.=A0 It looks to me as though the server has a default=
 setting that allows it to contact other devices (e.g., I can ping, ftp, te=
lnet, etc., other devices from my Freebsd server) but I cannot ping, ftp,=
=A0telnet into the Freebsd server from my host PC.=A0 My host is a Windows =
7 desktop, but I have tried pinging from another virtual device and cannot =
get a response from the Freebsd server.=A0 I do not believe that the issue =
is my Windows 7 PC.
I have tried the newest Disk 1=A0ISO image of Freebsd, 8.2, but I've also t=
ried a few other images with the same result.
I have combed through the documentation, tried configuring the firewall usi=
ng the "open" template, tried to disable the packet filter in rc.conf (pf_e=
nable=3D"NO"), to no avail.=A0 I cannot reach the Freebsd server no matter =
what I have tried, and I feel I have exhausted my options.=A0 The ports are=
 open and responsive on the virtual server itself, but access seems to be b=
locked to the Freebsd server.
I am hoping you can tell me how to change the default settings on the Freeb=
sd server to allow access from my Windows 7 host PC.=A0 Hopefully it does n=
ot involve manually rebuilding the kernel!
Thanks for your help!
