Peter, I'm going to recheck everything networking today, but don't hold
too much hope of me finding the answer as I'm mostly a computer user, and
only play a bit at fiddling with stuff behind the GUI.

Worth noting I guess.
I also upgraded a plain old 4.02 install with 0.8.7 and set up networking
and that seemed to be okay... In the sense that the RPCEmu will fully boot
Unfortunately still no network connection.

*ifconfig -a produces
1o0: flags=8008<LOOPBACK,MULTICAST> mtu 16384

Obviously no ping returns. (No route to host which is the

Bridging works okay, there was a minor problem but that's sorted.

I'm going to stick with the 4.02/0.8.7 install to see if I can get
networking then, I'll have another look at the 4.39

I've just been through the RO networking setup again, step by step as per
the RO configuration instructions.

Reboot RPCEmu.

*ifconfig -a gives the same report.
