Yeah, you set the tranlsator wrong, or you network card was not recognized.
We need the following info to help you:

1. The exact command you typed to set the translator.
2. The output of showtrans /servers/socket/2
3. The network card yo use and if GNU Mach detected it.

You can try a "dry run" by trying to start /hurd/pfinet ... and the options
you gave it in the settrans command. Common problems are for example: Did
you use the right --interface (eth0)? Did you spell all options correctly?
