Can you telnet or ftp?  With a stock FreeBSD install i'm suspecting that
some software on the win95 machine may be tripping you up.

I also noticed that the pn0 is saying "full duplex" since you are
on a hub it should be set to half-duplex:

ifconfig pn0 mediaopt half-duplex

then try again.

you may want to put that at the end of your ifconfig line
in /etc/rc.conf.

good luck,
-Alfred
