> Good evening everybody,
> I did wanted to test drive Dragonfly BSD a bit, but I'm somehow stuck.
> I create a virtual machine with VMware and installed Dragonfly but I can't
> get networking to work properly.
> The adapter seems to work fine, I can ping various IP's. However when I
> try to ping a host by name it doesn't work.
> In the resolv.conf I did enter the following lines:
> nameserver
> nameserver
> nameserver
> Whereas the former one is my router (Fritz!Box 7362 SL) and the later ones
> are the name servers of my provider (if I'm not totally mistaken).
> In the rc.conf I did enter the following network settings:
> hostname="dragonfly"    (I'm a creative genius)
> ifconfig_em0="inet netmask"
> defaultrouter=""
> The network is set to bridged mode in the VM settings and my router does
> list the VM as new device.
> Now my router is set to dual stack mode (IPv4/IPv6). At the moment I'm
> using static IP's for IPv4 and dynamic ones (DHCP) for IPv6.
> In the beginning (after installation) there was a line ifconfig_em0="DHCP"
> but it didn't work for me (I know horrible error description), so I did
> switch to the static address.
> Now this isn't a high priority, but it would be great if you have any
> hints to where my mistake might be or what I could have probably forgotten.
> Best regards,
> Christoph Harder
