This is that system with the missing management port, and I'm still fighting it. Everything *looks* right: 3: enp6s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP group default qlen 1000 link/ether 00:25:90:0a:42:87 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet 192.168.0.100/24 brd 192.168.0.255 scope global enp6s0 ip route 192.168.0.0/24 dev enp6s0 proto kernel scope link src 192.168.0.100 and ipmitool lan print IP Address Source : Static Address IP Address : 192.168.0.132 Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0 MAC Address : 00:25:90:0a:42:92 <...> Default Gateway IP : 192.168.0.100 Default Gateway MAC : 00:25:90:0a:42:87 I can ping 192.168.0.1... yet I'm getting martians on the real network. There's no firewall on enp6s0. Any clues as to what I'm missing? mark "No illudium Q-36 space modulators, please"
