Subject:   routing with ethernet (again)
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help

After all your tips. the routing finally seems to work. I hav eonly one 
problem left, when this is solved I will post a message explaning how 
everything worked out. This might be helpfull for people with the same problem.

Here's my (last?) problem:

I still have the configuration:

MS-WINDOWS            FreeBSD                        FreeBSD
<no name>           
netmask 0xffffffc0    0xffffffc0                     0xffffffc0
     |                      |              |                |
     \----------------------/              \----------------/

I use two seperate ethernet because one of them has to be replaced with a 
leased line so the can move to another building.

The routing seems to work, but when I want to use FTP from the 
ftp to goes fine
ftp to also goes fine
BUT: when I try to ftp to, and look at the traces in Winsock:
id=0008 fl=0100 
Questions 0001 0001
; size = 32
UDP 1042->53 32
00 08 01 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 03 31 39 33 
02 37 38 03 31 37 35 03 31 32 39 00 00 01 00 01 

the resvfrom-message repeats about 200-300 times. When I press the CANCEL 
button in the FTP client-program, the connection is made imediatly. It looks 
to me like the MS-WINDOWS machine is trying to look up the name of
But the nameserver ( seems to be configured correctly, when I 
try 'nslookup' on the FreeBSD machine (, I get:

host# nslookup


BTW when the recvfrom messages come along, I don't see any increases in the 
Ipkts and Opkts on the FreeBSD machine, so nothing seems to be transported 
over the Ethternet?

Does anyone know what the recvfrom-messages mean and why they apear so 
often. The recvfrom messages take about 30 sec.
