Hi Xin,

I am sorry for such a late reply :-( I was on vacation and got caught
up in some other things once I was back.  Hence the delays in replying

Let me know if you managed to progress with the issue you were facing,
or if you are still stuck.  I would surely like to help you if you are
still facing any issues on networking front on Barrelfish.

As per my understanding, the code in current tip of Barrelfish should
be able to work with NFS.  Most probably, you have already done quite
a few debugging, but here are few things I would try if I were you:

 * Can I ping the Barrelfish machine (using the IP given by DHCP server)
 * Can I quickly test the NFS code by running a webserver and see if I
can load files over NFS? (webserver is one of the most extensively
tested code in Barrelfish, and hence also a good indicator of where
things are broken)
 * If webserver is working for you then, there might be something
Postmark benchmark specific.  Then I would dig more into what is the
last thing LWIP code is doing (by enabling debugging statements from
the ``hake/Config.hs`` file)

I hope this helps!
