I might be mistaken, but i don't think the vr driver is in the 1.2 releases - i think Alix boards
require 1.3b or newer images.

I just received the ALIX based  WRAP unit today.  It seems the system is
booting with the pre-release, but I cannot pull an IP from the box.  I'll
copy the bootup output from the terminal:

m0n0wall console setup
1) Interfaces: assign network ports
2) Set up LAN IP address
3) Reset webGUI password
4) Reset to factory defaults
5) Reboot system
6) Ping host

Enter a number:
What's even more weird is that I cannot assign an interface, ping or
anything else.  Is there a way i can access the config XML file via a
shell?  I need to pull the PPPoE login info off the system as I don't have
it saved anywhere.  Preferrably, I'd like to get the entire XML file if
possible.  Any way to get to a shell?  I'd like to really make a backup of
the config so I don't lose hours of configuration work.

Any help would be appreciated.
