Setting this up isn't hard at all. It always is placed in
/servers/socket/2, because that's where glibc will look for it. So be sure to install it this way:
settrans /servers/socket/1 /hurd/pfinet --interface=eth0 OPTIONS, where
OPTIONSspecify your IP address, netmask and the gateway (if any). Only one network interface is supported currently. Later, you can also set further interfaces like
eth1and so on with the same command.
