I'm trying to set up with the guidens of openbsd FAQ 6.4.2 and I can not get anything on vr1 when I run the command ifconfig-A.
The only time you posted output from ifconfig, vr1 looked like this (please take note of what I have highlighted):
vr1: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        lladdr 00:0d:b9:1c:96:81
        priority: 0
        media: Ethernet autoselect (none)
        status: no carrier
If it continues to show "no carrier", your Ethernet connection is not functional. There are several possible reasons:
  1. You are trying to use a straight-through cable for a point-to-point connection, when a cross-over cable is required. We do not know if you and Igor have made any physical change to this segment of your network. If you have made no physical change and are still attempting to use a single straight through cable, you will continue to have this problem.
  2. You have some other physical connection problem -- a bad cable, improperly connected cables, or an improperly connected hub or switch.
  3. You have a bad NIC -- in the Alix, on the Laptop, or on a connected hub or switch. This is the least likely possibility.
