Exclamation Network problem with OpenBSD 4.6 under QEMU

Hi guys, i'm a complete newbie in all this stuff (Forums, OpenBSD, QEMU and Mac OS) and i just faced a problem with a fresh OpenBSD 4.6 installation under a VM in QEMU with Mac OS as Host OS.

At first i couldn't even ping the Host OS (, so i disabled pf setting pf = NO in /etc/rc.conf and now it answer the ping, but if i try to access internet this is what i get:

#traceroute yahoo.com
traceroute Warning: yahoo.com has multiple addresses; using
traceroute to yahoo.com (, 64 hops max, 40 byte packets
1 ( 4996.969 ms 4999.753ms 5000.202 ms
2 *
3 *
4 *
#ping yahoo.com
PING yahoo.com ( 56 data bytes
--- yahoo.com ping statistics ---
131 packets transmited, 0 packets received, 100.0% packet loss
It looks pretty weird to me, it resolves the hostname but it just doesn't get packets back, what could be wrong?, as a said before it is s fresh install, i mean that i downloaded the iso and installed with DHCP network configuration.

The Host OS is a Mac Os 11.4.0 and i'm using Q as QEMU frontend.

Recognize that OpenBSD 4.6 was released in October 2009. The general rule for support advocated by the project in Section 5.1 of the FAQ is that any particular release will be supported for the next two releases. This means support for OpenBSD 4.6 ended in the fall of 2010. OpenBSD 5.1 is the current release made available 1 May 2012.

Although this site has no formal connection with the OpenBSD project, we do try to stay in synch with the recommendations made by project developers.

As for commenting on qemu, I cannot help you as I don't use it. Perhaps others will join with their experience.
