 Static IP and SSH Conflict
Author: bwiggins 
Date:   24-11-05 17:40

I give up !! I need help. We set up bsd with DHCP and we could SSH into the server and everything worked fine. We changed it to a static IP and it works fine with devices on the same Cisco switch, but if I configure the gateway in rc.conf or add it manually with "route add default", we can then ping the server from anywhere on the network, but we cannot connect with SSH. If I add the default route (gateway) in rc.conf, the bootloader locks up running the sndmail script.

I've looked for anything that would cause a conflict but Ive given up. There's got to be something I'm missing. I'd appreciate it if anybody's got any suggestions I could try.
