"Invalid argument" on amd64



  • Hi,

    i'm trying to set up pfSense 2.0 amd64-Version on a VM (VMware Workstation 7.1) but i cannot get any kind of network connection to work :-(

    Open VM Tools are installed, i've tried the vmxnet and e1000 NICs with no success.

    Standard-Gateway is set and i can ping it, too. Nameservers are set correctly and they're pingable, too.

    I've disabled Hardware-Checksum-Offload in Advanced Options, but still no luck :-(

    Examples:

    
    2.0-RELEASE][admin@pfSense.localdomain]/root(21): pkg_add -r wget
    Error: Unable to get ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-8.1-release/Latest/wget.tbz: Invalid argument
    pkg_add: unable to fetch 'ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-8.1-release/Latest/wget.tbz' by URL
    
    
    
    2.0-RELEASE][admin@pfSense.localdomain]/root(21): nslookup files.pfsense.org

    ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
    
    

    Thanks for the help & Greetings from Germany

  • VMware Workstation 8.0 did the trick. The problem is gone now :-)

    Additionally I have to say that i've rebooted the Host Machine with a custom compiled Kernel (Debian Squeeze).
