Oi

I've installed m0n0wall on a Nokia IP110.
Went fine, I can boot and setup the LAN interface over the serial console.
It's connected to my workstation with a crossed UTP cable to the LAN port.

I can ping from the m0n0wall box to my PC, but not the other way.
I cannot get in touch with the web interface either.

A dump from Ethereal shows:
No   Source      Dest        Proto   Info
1    m0n0        localhost   ICMP    Echo (ping) request
2    localhost   m0n0        ICMP    Echo (ping) reply

13   localhost   m0n0        ICMP    Echo (ping) request

23   localhost   m0n0        TCP     2478 -> http [SYN]
24   localhost   m0n0        TCP     2478 -> http [SYN]
25   localhost   m0n0        TCP     2478 -> http [SYN]
...

The only thing I can spot that looks odd is the MAC addresses.
I think this is one of those boxes where the MAC addresses are
meant to be stored in Flash RAM or on the IDE disk.

Boot messages:

fxp0 has 4d:4d:00:00:00:00, the same for fxp1 and ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff for fxp2.
I've tried all three interfaces.

I cannot figure out how to get a console or config.xml editor over the
serial line, otherwise I would have liked to use that to change the
MAC addresses.

I'm at my wit's end.

Can anyone help me?
