Hi All,

Perhaps someone can help me once again with a little annoyance.

My network connection appears fine,  I can access Mail, News, Web etc.  =
Pings also work fine.

However whenever I try to traceroute, anything beyond the initial hop =
(my router) is not returning I just get:-

2    *    *    *
3    *    *    *
4    *    *    *
5    *    *    * etc

I though I may be my router, but the other 3 computers on my network (a =
RedHat 7.3   / Windows 98, Windows Me & a WIndows 2K laptop) Work fine.

So then I though ok perhaps it is the default firewall on the FreeBSD =
4.6 installation.  I tried listing the firewall rules, but just got:-

ipfw: getsockopt (IP_FW_GET): Protocol not available

Next I tried flushing any firewall rules, says "yes" I was sure,  but I =
got the same error as above.

Can anyone shed some light onto the problem and a possible solution, =
cheers.

Lee.
