Yesterday I received some very helpful advice from your technician.=A0 I ho=
pe you can answer these two questions today!
=A0
I am trying to configure Freebsd so that I can access it from my host PC, w=
hich is Windows 7.=A0 Yesterday the technician told me to configure bridgin=
g in VMware when I created the virtual Freebsd server.=A0 This worked fine,=
 but I'm wondering if there is a way to configure this outside of VMware.=
=A0 I tried this on a Freebsd v8.2:
=A0
ifconfig bridge create
ifconfig bridge0 addm em0 addm em1 up=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0 #interf=
ace names are em0 and em1
=A0
But it did not work.=A0 I assigned an IP address to em0 but could not acces=
s it from my Windows 7 host, although I could ping that address from the vi=
rtual server (TCP/IP stack was working).=A0 Is there something else I need =
to do to get this to work?
=A0
My second question is that this command is not in an older version of Freeb=
sd that I am using, v4.11.=A0 Do you have other commands to create a bridge=
d interface on this version?
=A0
Thanks for your help!
