Hi all,

here's one for ya!

I've installed freebsd 4.5.  I can ftp into a user account fine.  The
problem arises when I go yo say install apache by connecting to an ftp site
such as that problems arise.  I get a 'no address associated
with hostname'

has anyone any ideas?

also, in /etc/rc.conf, I've got the ifconfig set as ifconfig_vr0 instead of
ifconfig_sis0.  If I do the latter I can't ftp or ssh into the box.  any

many thanks!
