Something I thought might be helpful. I started moving the cable between the 4 ethernet ports and found that I can ping the e1000g0 NIC only. I can't ping any of the other 3 ports. All 4 now have static IPs with corresponding hostnames of pluto1 - pluto4.

I was thinking that you might have the cable in the wrong port. Could you post the output of ifconfig -a with DHCP enabled?
You will need to know which port is which at some point. I would suggest removing /etc/hostname.pluto2-4, reboot -- -r, and plug in the etho cable in each port until you get a link. Then label that port with the correct pluto1. You can repeat to label the rest.

Well son-of-a-gun. I don't know what was causing problems but I deleted all of them but nge0, connected the cable to it and it's pinging. Now I'll try bringing each of them up again and see if I start having the same problem.

Thanks so much for your patience and time!
