Hi people,
    I'm new to freebsd so I'm still learning, but I've encounted a =
problem I cannot find an (english) explantion/solution for. Basically, =
I've installed Freebsd 5.0 on a machine with two Network Interface Cards =
in. Now, when I boot up, I receive a 'dc0: watchdog timeout' - I have to =
force the interface to down until a cable connected to the switch is in =
place - then I bring the interface up and all is well. It seems to be a =
problem in setting one of the NICS (dc0) to idle state? (dc0 =3D Netgear =
310TX, aue0 =3D Dlink USB -> Ethernet - no probs with this one :). Now I =
suspect this goes hand in hand with my next problem, dummynet. I've =
recompiled the kernel, enabling IPFIREWALL, IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE & =
IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE_LIMIT =3D 10, and rc.conf is set to =
'gateway_enable=3D"yes", firewall_enable=3D"yes" and =
firewall_type=3D"open".  Now I can add a dummynet pipe fine with syntax: =
ipfw add 00050 pipe 1 from any to 10.0.0.0/24 but, when I try to =
configure it I get error:=20

ipfw: setsockopt(IP_DUMMYNET_CONFIGURE): Protocol not available=20

What does this mean? and how do I solve it?

Thanks=20

Colin.
