VirtualBox: DHCP problem with FreeBSD

Posted in Open Source, Softwares, Tips tagged , , at 7:57 pm by Karel MALBROUKOU

Today, i got this idea.
Kick out Linux and welcome FreeBSD!!!

Little trick: Use PCnet-PCI II instead of PCnet-PCI III (FastEthernet for that one .. forget about it) for the network adapter.

That’s it! Easy, ain’t it?
Let’s take a look about that Demon!

Who knows, I may add a category FreeBSD later on 😛 Stay Wired!
