From the Fixit environment of a FreeBSD 8 install disk, how do I download a file using ftp?

  1. Run ifconfig to find what ethernet controller you have. Mine was em0.

    fixit# ifconfig
  2. Now assign an IP address. Make sure to find an open IP Address that is not already in use.
    fixit# ifconfig em0 inet 192.168.0.25 netmask 255.255.255.0
  3. Run the following commands to enable ssh/sftp capability:

    Fixit#
    Fixit#
    mkdir /usr/bin
    ln -s /mnt2/usr/bin/ssh /usr/bin/ssh

You can now connect to a server on your same subnet using sftp. Feel free to add a default route if you need to connect to a remote server or add a DNS server if you need name resolution.

fixit# sftp user@192.168.0.10
