Today the UPC technicians setup my internet connection. It requires two technicians to plug in the modem and make a phonecall to the UPC HQ. I wonder why there is no selfinstall option. At least this time they did not want to touch one of my PCs.
Afterwards i resetup a the soekris firewall. It was a bit tricky, because there was a display problem on the serial console, so it was a partial blind flight. And i forgot a couple of things, so it took longer than expected.
Things not to forget next time:

  • /boot/loader.conf: console=comconsole
  • /etc/ttys: enable ttyd0
  • /etc/rc.conf: Add network configuration for sis0 and enable ssh
